Did a short day trip to visit the reported helicopters at Edgwicks Transport depot Northway lane Tewkesbury. A bit of discussion has been developing on the various forums with regards to the true ID’s and C/n’s. Fortunately the good news is that it was recently reported that six of the seven VT- had the C/n plates read off and confirmed.
Viewing was done at three locations around the depot, all of which were public footpaths or roads. I had read that the company was keen to restrict access and did not want staff in any photographs taken. As it was Sunday, I was able to take a number of photographs without workers. You can see from my photographs that the owner is now putting vehicles around the cabins to restrict viewing.
Non of the helicopters have the markings, thus apart from the person who reported the C/n’s, all we can do is take the list.
A few photographs, all taken whilst on public footpaths and roads around the storage area.
Noted between 1020-1035hrs
Those marked with an ***, are those reported as the C/n being read off.
