Probably time for another batch of photos from the last tour.
Strange things is that I've done a heap of flying but I hardly ever take photos....
Landing up at 5500ft to drop some technicians off. They needed to fix the VHF for Port Moresby in the Rabaul area.
Getting gas at Tokua
Had to fly the cops out to Tanga Island to quell some local action. A couple of quite tricky landing sites that day. Strong winds, 30kts + and hard up against a hill.
One of the more modern PNG villages on Tanga.
Fuel at Lihir during a six hour SAR job.
The boss flew up from Lae in this for its 100 hour inspection. Ex ZK-HAV
The 105 was originally built by MBB: Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm. So I guess you could say... here's a gaggle of Messerchmitts.
On the way home from a government job.
Up nice and high for fuel economy... In fact, I think this is the highest I've been in a helicopter... I still had to restrain the old girl from going through VnE up there.. what a machine.
Looking toward the village of Nokon which is where the local MP (and now my friend) lives. He keeps a drum of JetA for us... just in case.
Even up that high, I couldn't get over the tops so I had to go around it a little... They do weather properly in PNG
