What's The Skinny Here.

Good day Gents and Ladies,

 

We had a Intermediate gearbox chip light just before the shoreline and I set down at the Musquodoboit shopping area at about 8:40 yesterday morning. After the engineer arrived and checked the plug, we ran her again to find that she had been making a bit of metal.

 

Had a spare put on and we were home in YHZ by late afternoon.

I was amazed the news didn't make the connection between the S61N and Sea King.
The local radio station, Q104, stated " ... a helicopter made an emergency landing in Jeddore, at least it wasn't a Sea King this time... "

 

i'm surprised no one else has said so yet, but GOOD JOB, rotorhead!!!

 

Thanks, but it's always a team effort in the 61 cockpit.

Vortex Ring, we tried telling the media we were the military but our machine's so much prettier than yours they wouldn't believe us. :D

 

All kidding aside, Rotorhead did a fine job. Like a good maritimer he found a site 100 yards from a pub!

 

PS. Are those Marine Ice Hounds still buzzing around in that Osprey?

Bladestrike you are right, besides saying that big 61N is like a Sea King is like saying that a 1963 chevy half ton is the same as the 1985 truck, yes but no.

 

The Marines are indeed still here. I haven't had time to chase the guys down I am on course on Halifax side till next week. I'll keep trying and call you when we can see them. Some boys saw them land several days ago looking like a popsicle apparently, neat.
