These are mainly of XV130 /R of 666Sqn AAC but XP891/S sneaked in too.

Taken on 24.06.92 (I did a double take..can't believe it was that long ago)

We both know a bloke(Billy Perdue) next door who'd have given his right arm for these a few years ago when he did a Scout.

I'm sure he'd have included the bucket,squirty sprayer thingy,the hammer and all the other bits n bobs in the back.

Just noticed that some underhanded fiend has made off with the main blades too!!

The hammer did make me wonder if some REME lads had been in the back but can't see any empty beer bottles rattling about so likely not ;)

The blades were due a check so the engineers decided that it would be good work experience for the cadets,so rather than do it at their temporary base at Garelochead,they waited until they got to Dunoon.

It was quite educational to watch them assist with the removal of the eight blades (*),carry them 100 yards into the TA hall then assist in the inspection and as they say in the Haynes manual,re-install in the reverse procedure.

Guess what the hammer was used for?

They did a good job as they knew they would be flying in them the next day.

It was a really great visit by the ARMY pilots and their Civilian ground crew.

 

(*) There were two Scouts not a previously unknown variant :)
