                No sure of the location of this shot, but guessing it may be HMS Osprey/RNAS Portland.

                  • N341MH Change of Ownership

                    Not sure I have seen this on here...

                    N341MH changed owners to Gilbert Greer Wright IV on 9.4.22

                    His business seems to be Minerals and farming and also owns a Cessna 310R N8700S

                      And two days later, on 11-Apr-2022, N341GW was reserved for this very same Gazelle, supposedly to reflect the name of the new owner.

                    Zis, do you have an ID for the above Gazelles?

                      The Serbian Police Gazelle actually is the SA 342L cn1926, YU-HEB, with a pretty interesting pedigree (originally in service with the Iraqi AF). She is also depicted in the post 5494, from the other side.

                            • XZ337 Westland SA341B Gazelle AH.1 (1677) was one recently sold by Witham Specialist Vehicles, Colsterworth. It is now known to have been purchased by Martin and Lynn Tydeman in Freiston, Lincolnshire.

                              They acquired the Gazelle in June 2021 and plan to restored it and are looking for many parts !

                                I wish them the best of luck but I have my doubts as to whether that particular Gazelle will ever fly again. It just had too many parts missing and wouldn't be cost effective to restore.

                                Based on what Stefano is saying, perhaps they could turn it into a static display?

                                Probably should have said I think it will be a static restoration, I have seen pics of it and as md600 says far too many parts missing. I have sent the owner an email asking him if he would like to join Avia and Brit Gaz.

                                  I think that maybe a stretch of imagination and very expensive.

                                  I may be able to find him some unserviceable panels.

                                    • 2-PJBA and P-WMAN Coming Off the Guernsey Register

                                      Two Gazelles on the Guernsey register have been cancelled in April 2022 and will be going on to the Hungarian register.

                                      2-PJBA cancelled to HA- 7.4.22
                                      2-WMAN cancelled to HA- 5.4.22

                                      I am hoping the last registered owner of 2-PJBA may be able to shed some light on this change ?

                                        Please could also enquire as to whether there were any issues relating to being on the Guernsey register, information perhaps which could be useful to Gazelle owners (or prospective Gazelle owners) who may be considering registering their aircraft on the Guernsey register.
