  • Hi there
    The incidents were detailed in the UK aviation monthly magazines such as Pilot/Flyer/Today's Pilot....on one occasion, a gang attacked a helicopter with axes and sledgehammers and targeted specific points of the aircraft; ie, they had been told exactly where to aim their strikes.

            • Had a chat with a member of the ASU yesterday. He was going through the differences between the two helis, there's some slight differences in kit I won't talk about. One difference I can mention is the dog boxes in the rear of the aircraft. Now the new heli can transport the dog unit without getting hairs everywhere.
