I just saw/heard on the news that the Princess Royal escaped a helicopter fire this afternoon: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/north_east/7033701.stm In another link there is a photo of the helicopter she had in 2001: http://images.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.hebrideantrust.org/photoalb/images/019_JPG.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.hebrideantrust.org/photoalb/pages/019_JPG.htm&start=5&h=256&w=384&sz=25&tbnid=kWmLVF7tyjuN6M:&tbnh=82&tbnw=123&hl=en&um=1&prev=/images%3Fq%3D%2522princess%2Broyal%2522%2Bhelicopter%26svnum%3D10%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26cr%3DcountryUK%257CcountryGB%26sa%3DN%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DISO-8859-1 What I am particularly interested in, if anyone knows, is what sort of helicopter did she have in 1996/1997 (not entirely sure on year)? At that time, her helicopter landed on the piece of grass just outside my workplace, in Chichester. We had to take turns to go and watch, and the Princess had left, by road, when I got outside. It was a beatiful looking, maroon helicopter and the pilot was kind enough to do some manoevres for the onlookers. I have often wondered what type it was and would be glad if anyone can tell me. I would also be interested in the make and model of the current one. Thanks.
