I've had enough! - AW139

Postby Jabberwocky » Sat Oct 24 2009, 06:19

Twice today my home has been flown over by a brand-spanker looking, corporate AW139!! And to top it off I had to sit there last week at work on the rooftop in The Rocks and watch it do laps of the Harbour!! It's just not fair for us low timers to be teased like this... :D

Awesome looking machine and looks like it flies even better again. So anyone know who's this is or where it's going? Packer's S-76 hasn't been making it's daily runs back and forth up the coast the last week...? Although I did see it go by 6 times in one day the week before.

Speak of the devil... there goes Packer's trusty old girl now on-route to Sydney... 8)

So what would a AW139 in corporate kit like that cost someone? I've heard that the 109 grands can be ~$8M and the EMQ machines were $16-ish.

Cheers yak, I'm trying mate but all this chopper naughty is making it bloody difficult :)
