  1. Paul, Check your emails. All is not what is seems. Neville
  2. After a couple of PMs with Kyle I thought I would post this. CA Aviation is a great forum and there are a lot of great people here and Kyle has done a fantastic job getting it to where it is today, the leading meeting place for everyone involved in the Canadian helicopter industry. However I will ashamedly admit that I have probably overstepped my mark in promoting my magazine here. And in pure ignorance I have to admit I have actually never read the rules here on the forum. As I have blatantly overstepped the boundaries set by Kyle I owe him and all members here an apology. As Kyl
  3. For the record I was not attacking Kyle personally here, if it has come across that way then I apologise openly to him. I have explained in a PM to him that the post was merely a way to inform everyone who emailed me about the deletion of the posts rather than reply to all those that contacted me. Thats the only reason, nothing more, nothing less. Heli Ops
  4. Actually Kyle is the owner of this site so is actually the majority. Like the old saying goes its his sandpit and he can make whatever rules he wants. Bottom line I am not the one that loses out here. Am I concerned about the favouritisim here, no not really. Just means I will give away copies of the mag elsewhere. Thanks again all and hope you enjoy your copies. Cheers. Heli Ops :up:
  5. Just got a PM from Kyle saying he will not allow me to give away any more magazines here on the Rotorheads forum, since he classes it as advertising. There will be no more offers or posts on this and he has deleted the ones that were there, seems one of the members here had a word in his ear, and I have a pretty good idea who, but hey, its Kyle's sandpit and he makes the rules. Seems like he has also deleted the links to the other photo gallery. Funny though I see the Vertical Out West thread is still there as well as the link promoting their desktop calendars. Thanks to those that

  7. Nick - You are dreaming, Canon all the way. The best Nikon digital is a 12 megapixel camera, yet I have the top of the line Canon EOS1DS MK II and its a 16.2 megapixel camera, and the focusing system is much better. :up: :up:
  8. Latest is major rescue effort going on at Kings Cross station where they are trying to free people injured and trapped on the train. Reports of fatalities on this train has been confirmed.
  9. Just been on the phone to friends in London and total of six bombs have gone off to sar. The guys at Virgin HEMS (MD Explorer based in London) are flat out shuttling patients from downtown to their hospital. More info as it comes to hand.
  10. Just watching the news and multiple bomb blasts have rocked London this morning, right in the middle of rush hour. At this stage there have been a total of five explosions, both on the underground as well as on some double decker buses. Only report I have seen so far mentions 90 casualties at one of the blasts in Aldgate. More as it comes to hand.
  11. Southern Oregon man dies in helicopter crash 07/07/2005 Associated Press A helicopter crash in Italy killed an Erickson Air-Crane mechanic and injured three other people, a company official said.

  13. Floriano Finamoresono was the pilot of the Crane.
  14. Skidz - It was in the Italian news not long after it happened and I made sure, from a few sources, that the name was already public, before posting it, thats why it wasnt in my original post. Heli Ops
  15. Here it is in Italian and you can see that Marty Erickson's name is mentioned. In Italian, Fiumicino: precipita elicottero, un morto Un tecnico canadese della Eriksson ha perso la vita.
