Here’s one of the Supertrucks out on its rounds just before Christmas.

Rotor quota…

Posted on 05/12/2018

Just a quick off load of a Lynx helicopter and setting it down on the hardstand for a client today. No need to worry about any fancy slinging as the technicians had a lifting point that connected to the top of the rotor shaft – held on by nothing else but the ‘Jesus-nut’ by jiggery!
