            I think this is the first time I have seen a helicopter with stabilizing fins on the floats

            These were standard with the 'D' model, but not with the 'C'.

            Not sure if they are to be found on other types.

            An unusual scheme on this bird, owned by Century Aviation at Sandtoft so not too far from its base. It was in the same scheme as its previous identity OO-SOO which I am sure I photographed at a Helitech event.

            It's nice to see a little more variety.

            Nice to see G-AXEJ again, flew in this one from Battersea to a farmers field about 6 miles North of Bedford. I was with my brother and a friend who then had to try and get to Bedford. We started to thumb a lift (safe to do so in those days). A chap stopped and gave us a lift asking how we were in the middle of nowhere. Thinking he would'nt believe we had just landed further up the road in a helicopter., he said yes I saw it take off. Great memories

            Lovely story Elipix, and just wonderful how you have these connections with so many of the UK's classic rotorcraft. This 'C' model truly is a classic among the UK's early 500's and I suppose one of Davide's earliest examples?

            Thinking this must have been during ownership of David Richards Autosport ? Seem to remember when Ken Stokes had it, it was red and white, unless he painted it before sale. It then became G-ITUP still with David Richards Autosport before sold to Turkey as TC-HMC and then to South Korea as HL9139. It was cancelled there and not heard of since ?

            Wow, what an exotic adventure this craft has had since leaving the UK!
