A good idea needs landing gear as well as wings to get off the ground.

Sorry Pegs, but the boss has asked that we keep photos of the EC135 (VH- Secret) under wraps at this stage. He doesn't want its image/ID burnt just yet. Therefore would you be able to remove the photos?

Of course you can hang onto them as private and there will be a time in the future where it probably wont make a differnce. You will remember that at the time I explained why it didn't have any Police markings on it.

For those that missed the pix, sorry.

Hi Pegs

The Harvard (VH-VFM) in those Photo was my Grandfathers from 1984 up until last year. And was wondering if you could email me those Photos so i could print them out for him. Not sure he would approve it flying from a gravel strip!

Hi Mate,
yeah sure thing, PM me your email address and i will be happy to send some through to you :D , you will be pleased to know its not flying off a gravel strip, that is a WW2 strip at Batchelor NT, the one down at Coolandie Creek (I think :? thats how it was spelt), which is a sealed strip. The Harvard flew in as part of the Darwin Areonautical Historical Society who had a bit of a get together down at Batchelor that weekend. She was a stunner of a plane, certaintly caught our attention. :D a pity to have to part with an aircraft like that.
