Re: Helicopter Pictures

This is a beauts Bell 407 ZS-RHT having some fun at the high ground of the Heli GF (April 2007). It is a wonderful teal colour with a pearl (not silver) accent.

Re: Helicopter Pictures

One of my first chopper pictures taken way back in Feb 2003. This is of B407 ZS-RLM (Version 1) at Sterkfontein Dam taken with a Mik-en-Druk Sanyo camera that saved pictures at a whopping 1600 x 1200 pixels. My but how technology has changed  http://www.fototime.com/AB248B6088F8B1C/orig.jpg

I'm surprised you don't know the story. Many years ago she did a barrel roll and loop at the Virginia Airshow. A big no-no. Took a good few years to get her cleared and certified again. It's just really quite fortuitous that she has the registration RIB for what she did. Sometimes when you are out f...

Thanks for the great pics Bell 407! The 212 is a dream machine. Looks like she had a cockpit makeover?
Yip, all nice and shinny in the business end of things -):

Thought maybe to start a thread dedicated to the whirly birds. Bell 212 ZS-HRP Rand Airport 2 Dec 2012. She looked a bit ragged on the outside but the cockpit was nice and shinny. I suppose she was a bit ragged seeing she was a '74 model  . She's off to Antarctica for a few months. http://www.fototi...

Re: Henley Air webcam, Rand Airport

The red Ford truck should be moving out of the view of the HenleyCam West within the coming week. It has been used to access the roof of the two hangars as Henley Air have been replacing the skylight roof sections that were damaged with the recent hail storm.

Looks like another standoff is brewing. The piston team is busy collecting their reinforcements for an assault later on if any turbines should pitch up  :) :)

Jerpers. The hail in Edenvale was obscene. In our complex at least 1034 cottage windows broken. Two cars have had their rear windows blown in. Countless cars with hail damage. It's like a war zone. Builders Warehouse is sold out of Duct tape. Saw on AvCom a Cessna with a hole through the windscreen....

Thanks Raffles. Nice catch.

Just to wet the appetite. I am looking at a live view feed of HenleyCam East at the moment. Just figuring out the FTP and upload.

Should be going live later. Will keep you posted.

Re: Henley Air webcam, Rand Airport

OK, so got the HenleyCam East installed today but found out that the switch being used on the network is not Power Over Ethernet compatible. So getting a switch soonest to get the camera up and running.

Update: OK, so have spoken to the guys at Axis Cameras and they have given me directions on how to change the setup to handle bright afrternoon sunlight. Something about turning on the Wide Dynamic profile option. Will give that a try when THERE IS NO RAIN IN JOBURG AND THERE ARE BRIGHT SUNNY AFTERN...
