    • SA341B ZB666 (WA1933) as seen at AAC Middle Wallop on 11th May 1992 (Photo by Simon Bullimore)

      The somewhat unfortunately registered 'ZB666' seen here at Wallop. Eight years later, on 24th February 2000 and while serving with 664 Squadron, she would be written-off on Mount Kenya after hitting a tree with her main rotor at night.

      However, behind this regrettably registered Gazelle, can be seen a delightful Antonov Aи-2 'Annushka'. Click here to see a Hungarian Annushka starting up.

        I heard that the remains of ZB666 went to the North East Aircraft Museum for spares use.

        I wonder what the museum will do with those spares?

        I believe to put in G-BAGJ?

        And yes, HA-PPY is safely back in her hangar in the UK.

          Grazie Stefano!

      • Can anyone identify the pre-production Gazelle pictured on page 3 of this report? Very little to go on but some of the experts here might know this machine. Thanks.

            Looks like a Westland 341B, C, D or E.

            Could this be G-KEMH its showing on g-info as CAA permit application dated 28.1.19 with an expected processing date of 15.2.19. She is a 341B...

            341B for sure.

            • I have been in contact with the chairman of NELSAM (North East Land, Sea and Air Museum, Usworth) who informs me that ZB666 was donated to the museum circa 2008 to be stripped for spares to rebuild XX380 for display at Wattisham. What was left of ZB666 was disposed of.

              Also to report is that G-BAGJ is going to return to civilian markings in the future. Can't wait to see that, this is the first helicopter and only Gazelle I have flown in.

              Information with thanks to NELSAM

                Grazie .. for the update Elipix.

                Very interesting about BAGJ, especially given your connection with the bird. Will this be the first civilian static display Gaz in the UK?
