couldn't be further away if you tried Blackers, actually Chicken Hawk already nailed this one yesterday.
The Location of this heli pad is V.R.D
translated this is Victoria River Downs Station, Top End Northern Territory, about 250klm from the WA/NT Border. :D Base for Helimuster NT.

OK, it's really Mumbai, but it was Bombay when we were there with 212's all those years ago :wink:

ONGC own the hangar! They have been around for some 25-30 years, and had us (with 212's) and the Indian Air Force with Mil-8's running out to Bombay High field, both operating 'commercially' 8)

Is it my turn, or a free-for-all? :wink:

Blackers, a bit more info for your helipad symbol. the Triangle is oriented north up. If you look at the shadows in the photo its pretty close.
