Smokey touchdown on THR34
It looks quite clean!
The end of the day... [1200 pixels].
First time in database.
First time in JP database. Next registration: OY-NPC and later ZS-OLS. Sadly crashed in 2004 at GRJ, South Africa, probable cause: bird strike. No fatalities. Scanned from negative film.
One of the last pictures with this chopper (scanned from negative film). It crashed just few months later near Iasi, Romania.
Taxies out to runway 34.
Despite the heavy snowfall and low temperature (-16 C) I took at least one shot with this visitor from the Antipodes.
Veiled in purple light of the early morning.
