Things have been getting back to normal on base, slowly but surely, that’s not to say there haven’t been some interesting comings and goings.
The ‘rattys’ got off to a good start while we had the good weather, as I write this they have baited just over 54% of the areas they are targeting but have been slowed down by recent poor weather and the snapping of a blade in high winds! I should add it was on the ground at the time and the engine wasn’t running – I don’t think any of the pilots, engineers and rest of the ratty team have seen a snapped blade due to wind strength before. That’s left them with two of the three helicopters operational with the third helicopter living in my boatshed.
I’m expecting the post to arrive soon, so if you sent anything towards the end of last year it might turn up in the coming weeks. I’ll update everyone in the next blog post .
