        • Meet the singing daughter of an Avia member who also likes to fly Gazelles!




          SA341G N37UP (cn.1224) con 'Arianna' in Italia on 12th April 2019

          Liberio (owner of N37UP) is very proud of his daughter Arianna (above) and wanted to share with us her latest song Un mondo che balla (A world that dances) a summer dance song for the people of Italy and beyond!

          In addition to singing, Arianna's papà reports that his daughter enjoys flying '7UP' and does so very well.

          Congratulazioni Liberio!

          • SA341G 4X-BHI (cn.1294) as seen conducting film work over the Sea of Galilee c. late 80's early 90's

            A truly rare bird on today's Flashback Friday, not only a Hebrew Gazelle, but one with fixed floats!

            Notice the green paint on the oil cooler pipe cover, a leftover from her days as D-HAIR.
            With our great thanks to Elipix for sourcing this photo, grazie amico!

              I think I still have that green oil cooler pipe from 4X-BHI. I can remember getting some of the covers repainted though.

              I never saw any floats when I emptied the stores in Israel, presumably they were damaged beyond repair.

                I'm losing track of our past conversations and lacking the benefit of input from Zishelix who is on temporary leave! I thought we identified 4X-BHH and BHG as Crabtree Gazelles, are you saying that you bought BHI also?

                I bought all the spare parts, including all the stripped as well as damaged airframe parts.

                  It seems as if a fair number of birds flew the Yeovil coop without the quality control or date stamp on their data plate.

                  It is possible I suppose, that Westland's official 'stamper' was on tea break when the aircraft were being dispatched for delivery, and I suppose it is also possible that the releasing of aircraft from the shop so consistently interfered with his tea breaks that he simply stamped up a batch of plates, put them in a pile, and told the fitters to help themselves as required!

                    That looks like a rather new replacement data plate to me ?
