      • N341MH now reserved as N341GW for current owner Gilbert Wright.

        N505HA has been seen with Dynali Technical Support titles at Temploux. It is said to be operating from the Dynali Helicopter company HP near Nivelles !

        There does not seem to be a change of owner for N505HA so is this just being used by Dynali ?

          505 has been with Dynali for a while now. I actually thought I saw something the other day which may have indicated she was up for sale but I am not 100% sure.

                        Excellent finding, Sav! It's SA341G c/n 1036 C-FTCS while it was with Shirley Helicopters Ltd., photo probably taken in early 1980's.

                        Thanks. In fact, the Iraqi Air Force SA342 is serial YI-297: SA342M, c/n 3973, ex ALAT (serial YI-287 being an EC635).

                                      Elipix, if you still have contacts at Elstree, would you be able to find out how long HWF has been sitting there?

                                      A Big Thanks to All our Photographer Supporters

                                      I just want to acknowledge the sterling support of the many many photographers who consistently and generously grant their permission for us to post their work on this thread, many not even asking for recognition but who are simply happy to help. Of course, whenever we are able to identify the photographer, we will always mention them. There are too many to mention here and now, but today's contributors, Rick Ingham and Graeme Lovell, are two perfect examples from among a host of amazing photographers who support this thread. Grazie mille amici!

                                        My contact at Elstree says the Gazelle YU-HWF has been there for about a month ! It arrived at Elstree by road and is awaiting an engine ? It is usually looked after by MW Helicopters so strange it should be roaded to Elstree and not Stapleford Tawney ?

                                      • Hello all again

                                        I hope everyone has been keeping well.

                                        I'm wondering if anyone knows someone who would be interested in allowing me to borrow their Gazelle on an Adhoc/sparse basis for me to private hire?. I've flown my own gazelle (SA341B G-UNNS) until recently however the machine sold not long ago, therefore if there is someone who doesn't mind allowing me to borrow/hire theirs that would be great.

                                        Ciao
                                        Liam

                                          We've had enquiries before about the availability of a self-fly hire Gaz. Perhaps it's time to re-visit this issue and explore the options. Elipix any thoughts?

                                          Interesting Liam, thanks for the heads up. I notice your Gazelle was sold to ZK Leasing (UK) Ltd and registered to them on 15.6.22 - Was it to Mark Gittos ?

                                          I am not sure of any Gazelles for self fly hire, probably best to contact Mr Atherton or The Gazelle Squadron !

                                          Thank you for your replies!
                                          Mark Gittos is the one.

                                          I have mentioned my interest before to Mr Atherton.

                                          If anyone hears of anything please feel free to contact me. Happy to ferry Gazelles, take and return to maintenance, do ground runs, flight tests, and private hire too!

                                          Thanks for your help

                                        Former Gaz owner and Avia member Liamo is looking to self-fly hire a UK-based Gazelle. This is not the first such request to have surfaced over the years. Are any of our UK-based readers interested in forming a 'Gaz Group' or are there any owners who would be interested in allocating a number of hours for this purpose. Alternatively, are there any of our members who would be interested in being part of a shared-ownership Gaz? If so, contact Liam at: liambarnes2005@gmail.com

                                                Not hundred percent sure, but it could be 342L1 cn 4208, just before it was fitted with the Mistral air-to-air missile system and became F-MCYT.
