Remarks: This fully kitted out EC 145 climbs away from the Heliport today with the backdrop of Paris behind, no doubt in search of some car jackers or other riff raff on the streets of Paris. Shot from the 22nd floor of our hotel as the sun heads towards the horizon.
Remarks: These lovely old workhorses are destined for the scrap heap and are becoming hard to find in a decent state. This TWA example has been sitting in the hot desert sun for many years and although still looking almost majestic as she once was, has been stripped for parts and awaits her fait.
Remarks: DHL hasn't put much effort into trying to remove this aircraft's identity before parking her up for the inevitable scrap heap. She looks almost usable with engines attached in the last light of the day.
