Pulling our R44 out of the hangar tomorrow morning for a flight out to the east. I'll wave at the cameras :thumbsup1:

Did you wave In The Haze?

Anyway, I saw this Mexican Standoff brewing this morning on the pad. Not sure what the outcome will be but should make for facinating viewing today :grin: :grin: (okay okay it's a slow morning today).

That Augusta will whip them lawn-darts's butts before they can even get off the ground! (Now where's Airwolf when you need him?)

You can sms me 10 minutes before takeoff and I can then try catch u in a screenshot, if I am at my computer.

Looks like there is a network issue at Henley this morning. Has happened in the past when the network is rather slow hence the pictures showing a delayed response time.

Sorry landed 15:30, but only back in office today.

Yep was there, took off around 11:15am, chopper was already pulled out (thanks Henley crew) but was parked opposite NAC up on left, just out of camera view, as you can see Henleys parking was pretty full. I did wave again on return. Will arrange a bit better next time, could be anytime actually but will get someone at the office to capture a screenshot as well.

Childish I suppose but hell why not, I really don't want to grow up. :grin: :godloveus:

You see, when the light is right you can hardly see a difference between the two webcam images. Lovely panorama site this morning.

Yip. If you watched earlier in the month a whole bunch of topsoil was deposited out there. Has been spread rather nicely. There is only a sprinkler system for the southern pads unfortunately. Nothing for the northern pads. But with the first drops of rain green and gold should be evident again.

Well it seems that the Mexican Standoff between Turbines and Lawndarts has progressed.

The Turbines seem to have created a sense of False Security by leaving two helipads open - almost an arrogant stance if you ask me.

The Lawndarts appear to have fallen for this basic chess move because now there is a turbine sitting behind enemy lines. Very Sneaky indeed.

But I see one of the turbines has retreated to the sidelines and another 2 are having their own stand-off, some infighting going on here.

(Please tell me how you post that screen shot 407)

I upload the image to my own website and then post the link here. It then displays the picture by referencing to my site.

I do it this way because picture attachments are not allowed on this site (please correct me if I am wrong).

Or you could use a third party hosting service such as Photobucket.

You can also use http://www.servimg.com which is the one I am using but as far as I know they don't do videos. But only the members here who signed up when we had the original platform, forumotion, will be able to use them however. Your username and password you used then will get you in.

Afternoon All,

In anticipation of the HenleyCam East being setup soon, we have tweaked the current HenleyCam Desktop App slightly (now designated HenleyCam West). A new version (V1.0.1) can be downloaded at:

http://cam.henleyair.co.za/downloads/HenleyCam.msi

Uninstall the old HenleyCam version and then run the new .msi file.
