      Elipix, do you think Stefano may have sold 2-ALOU to the Hamster?

              • Avia Member Kirill's New Lama!


                740 at Zheleznogorsk Airport (180 kilometers east of Bratsk)

                Kirill has during this past week taken delivery of this lovely Lama, RA-05740, which is former Swiss Helicopters bird HB-XTM. '740' has been fitted long-range tanks (which can be seen surrounding the main tank) and will join Kirill's Gazelle in Bratsk. Helicopters are a little like horses, in that they enjoy stable mates!
                We wish Kirill and those with him, many hours of safe and happy flying.

                Our congratulations to Kirill on acquiring his first Lama!

                  • 2-ALOU Change of Ownership

                    The latest Guernsey register shows that 2-ALOU had a change of ownership on 24.10.19.

                    This was mentioned before above with a picture of what looked like Richard Hammond as pilot ? Could he be the new owner ?

                                              Jos, if you're reading this could you explain why this aircraft has 'SN 21' written on its nose?

                                              On your database I see that cn's 1469, 1470 and 1471 were given the Rhodesian designations 19, 20 and 21 but why would these be considered serial numbers?

                                              • Hi Enrico,

                                                In fact they are former South African military serials 19, 20 and 21 (not Rhodesian). As you know, civil aircraft have registrations, military ones have serials. Military serials are also referred to as serial numbers (when they only contain numbers).

                                                  Grazie Jos, much appreciated.

                                                  For me this reinforces the advantage of referring to the manufacturer's serial no. as the 'construction number' so as to make clear the distinction between different types of serials.
