This thread is for the appreciation of the SA.341/342 series Gazelle helicopters of which I am an enthusiast.
Over the years I have collected a considerable amount of material relating to Gazelles, some of which I will be pleased to share here with those who are interested.
I will be happy to discuss anything relating to the history of the Gazelle (now almost almost 50 years old) as well as anything and everything relating to its operations around the world. I hope to meet other Gazelle enthusiasts along the way!
Finally, the Gazelle produces a unique sound as a result of a harmonisation which occurs between the fenestron and the main rotor blades. This effect is sometimes known as "shrieking."
