Very interesting pics those GD showing that the heli is under wraps and that the blades are off. Would be interested to know how and where the blades get put back on? Is there a system on board to do that? What about balancing etc? :thinking: :thinking:

GD, no worries with your posts here. I have moved the entire topic to the Photography section as it mostly contains pictures. Video clips are allowed but are generaly not in the majority of posts anyway :good:

Is it not part of Cape Town Helicopters fleet? On the day I was there it was doing the scenic trips operating from Cape Town Helicopters.

As far as I know it is with Base 4 - have a look at their Facebook page for details of its arrival https://www.facebook.com/Base4AviationPtyLtd.

It may well be doing scenics from the Waterfront so not sure if on sub-charter then :thinking:
