Some great photos have been shared over the past couple of months. At this stage the website is only including ones where the aircraft registration can be identified. I hope at some point in the future to include an ‘Unknown reg’ section but it is a while away yet.
Talking of crashes…G-HKCN, an Airbus AS-350 popped in to Sumburgh on the 10th May for a refuel before heading to Bergen for some more before its final destination aboard the luxury super-yacht Bacarella. When coming in to land aboard the yacht a recently installed fuel storage cover came loose and caused the helicopter to crash into the sea. Luckily all three pilots on board the new AS350 survived. The AS350 did not.
As part of the great divide between Loganair and Flybe, Loganair has unveiled its new livery with G-LGNN being the first to show off its new paint job. Cue many comments about tartan paint.
In April some people were thinking that April Fools Day had come a little late when it was announced that HIAL was looking at options where Air Traffic control would no longer be required at Sumburgh.
Sumburgh air traffic control could be replaced with ‘centralised surveillance’ https://t.co/GBnntbgKI2
