Awesome photo!
One of my school mates is now a helicopter pilot flying out of Aberdeen to the rigs.  I wonder if in a few years time he'll be flying out to the offshore wind farms instead...

How do you recognise the ship from just that photo? I struggled to remember naval vessels when in the navy. They were all grey which didnít help.

Andrew,

They're aren't too many vessel's painted yellow for a start..........

I've now attached a photo to bring the thread marginally within the R.E. topic - a picture of Mr. Trump's favourite wind farm....... (taken while waiting to berth)

Regards

Richard

Funny enough I got caught up in a Helicopter incident on Sunday just gone.

I was participating in my pastime of paragliding when another pilot crashed into the hillside.

Helicopter arrived and I had to lend my tow rope in order for several of us to help pull the stretcher up the hillside.

Luckily I don't think the pilot was too badly injured.

Another pilot! I flew Hang Gliders and Paragliders for years. Miss thermalling up to cloud base, with just the sound of the wind in the rigging..

Re paragliding I'm sure you've heard the phrase 'If you could see what the air was doing you wouldn't be flying in it'. Hehe.  Still good fun though.  I hope that other paraglider was ok.
