          • SA341 as seen at Pešterska visoravan in Serbia on 2nd June 2016 (Photo: Dimitrije Ostojic)

            Photographed at Pešterska plateau during 'Exercise Morava'.

            The craft is displaying the numbers '821' but this seems a little short compared with normal Serbian Air Force registrations. Perhaps Zis can assist in identifying this bird?

              • Gaz Down: Les Hauts-de-Chée, France

                An SA342M Gazelle of the 3rd Combat Helicopter Regiment, registration 'GAY' 4019, suffered a 'hard landing' at Aérodrome de Bar-le-Duc in Les Hauts-de-Chée yesterday.

                The circumstances surrounding the hard landing have yet to be publicised.

                Three persons were on board the aircraft and are reported as having sustained minor injuries.

                  This was the bird which we reported about in June 2014 after one of our Kent-based readers advised us that she had been sitting at Rochester Airport for something like two years (out in the open) without turning a blade. She was eventually rescued by the Gaz Squad. Perhaps she is going to be overhauled and will finally receive a little TLC - or will she be parted out?

                  Now Britain's Waitrose supermarket have incorporated the highly elevated pub in their Christmas ad:

                                      Nope. They have 15 Gazelles in total, 4 of them are licencly built 341H, 8 are 342L in two variants HO-45 and HN-45M and 3 genuine 341G. Not sure how many of these machines are still airworthy.
