A2-489 going to Port Pirie RSL

Postby Barneyb » Thu Mar 14 2013, 08:19

G'day guys, Iroquois A2-489 is going to be displayed at the Port Pirie RSL. I will be assisting with setting up the display. The RSL have asked me if I can help with photos and history of this aircraft. I remember working on and flying in her but nothing significant. I was wondering if anyone here may have some info they would be willing to share?
Regards,

Hey Barney,

Probably worth posting this one on "the dark side".

Cheers

Hello Barney,

Just the mention of "Huey" or "Iroquois" or "Slick" and my ears perk up, like a dog's. Fondest memories flying helicopters, definitely.
