  • It appears YU-HEV has become somewhat popular on here now... She's still landing behind my house. I've no idea where, but I'd love to go and get some close-up shots.

    Below are two pictures from yesterday.

        • Now that the South African online aircraft register has (finally) been updated again, I did find the following newly registered Gazelles:

          ZU-RED SA341F2 (1285); ex N285GZ, Fr.Mil; 15-Jul-2016
          ZU-RJH SA341F2 (1374); ex N374GZ, Fr.Mil; 15-Jul-2016
          ZU-RMD SA341F2 (1523); ex N523GZ, Fr.Mil; 14-Jul-2016
          ZU-RRE SA341F2 (1172); ex N172GZ, Fr.Mil; 15-Jul-2016

          All are registered to Aerospatiale SA34X P/L.

            They seem to have gone 'Gazelle mad' down there! Great stuff.

            I wonder though what they are going to do when it comes to overhauling all these Astazou engines? Btw, does anyone know which model Aztazou the F2 is fitted with?

            I think it is the Astazou IIIC

                      IIRC I think GazEn said that this was his favourite among the MW colour schemes.

                        All I know is that she was cancelled on 20-Aug-2013 as 'expired'. The certificate was issued on 15-Jun-2011.

                        I was told by someone involved in her sale that she went to China ???? Although I agree the trail has gone cold. She was last noted in Northern Ireland and I believe she was sold from there.

                    • Gaz Down in Syria

                      A Syrian Air Force SA342L Gazelle was shot down yesterday (2nd September) by rebel forces while patrolling near Al-Khattab, a village to the north of Hama, a town in west-central Syria.

                      The aircraft's crew, Col. Mohammad Ali Habib and Major Alaa' Ahmad Dayyoub, both perished in the attack.

                                    This is at Torrance California, I spotted this gazelle there about a year ago. Based on the size of it's huge instrument panel it would have to be one of the IFR gazelles. I have some pics I took but don't know how to post them. Based on what I saw it looked like it had been inactive for quite some time.

                                      One of the latest was taken at Sywell Aerodrome (EGBK) few days ago by Mr. Martin Uzzell during the 70th Light Aircraft Association Rally 2016.

                                              I was lucky enough to visit the Red Bull collection but that was many years ago. It was in their older hangar. Great tour and photographed everything at Salzburg.

                                                Yes indeed. It would actually require a 'content index' similar to the one which was available on the old Nostlagia Thread. In the meantime if you Google the aircraft registration followed by Aviafora .. you should get some hits.

                                                While there is a mention of the Gazelle Squadron. A friend has informed me that all future tours have been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Anyone know if this is correct ? If so, a great shame for genuine Gazelle enthusiasts !

                                                Might be correct, i asked about going along a while back and didn't get a reply.
