Posted this morning 7 July.


If you're interested in helicopters it's worth looking at the other pictures.

There's lots of amazing photos (mil and civvy) from all over the world.

i guess that there was something wrong with the tail, just my guess though.
If there wasn't then, there certainly is now. :)

Like the first photo with Danger written on the tail section, no sh1t sherlock.

Believe it or not many folk (especially some less air-minded folk in the Army) have walked into tail rotors before, like the Siggy lass at DJ Barracks who gave a few of us bad dreams for awhile with the aid of a Lynx fan. Painting 'Danger' is the least they can do.

She wasn't Sigs, AGC attached to a brown lidded Inf unit.

Walking backwards, whilst dragging a heavy holdall, towards the rear rotors gives you a nasty rash. Happened in 2000.

Cheers tattie. Memory aint so good nowadays!
I remember giving a brief a few years ago to a load of troops who were doing their Bosnia training and used to use the that story to highlight the dangers of the tail rotor. Several of them had known her and a couple were with her on that day. They didnt really need to have the dangers explained to them to say the least.....

Katy T*****r

I knew her as well Flash; we were at BLMF at the same time.

It was remarkable how quickly the "compulsory" heli briefs were reinstated before enplaning (enchoppering?) though!!
