Dragonfly WG722 of 705 Squadron RNAS Culdrose on 24 May 1961. The aircraft suffered a transmission failure, autorotated into a field, rolled downhill and became embedded in a farmer’s bungalow. The two man crew vacated the helicopter shortly before impact. One lady resident was slightly injured.

Some technical challenges with the modification for a larger cockpit.

Commander Jones's new extension wasn't terribly convenient, but he had at last found something that didn't require planning permission.

The Admiral insisted on WAFUs using the Tradesman's Entrance for 'at Home's.

I compliment myself on 'deciding' that it was a Dragonfly - or was that a lucky guess?

Good morning. I assume a cup of tea is out of the question.

Actually I think I have posted this before but one of our Queen's Flight choppers landed in a garden in Henley or somewhere near. They were doing a recce for a Royal flight but got the wrong garden and destroyed all the pot plants and small bushes. The guy said he was just waving to them as he does to all choppers not indicating they were supposed to go into there. They went back by car in No.1s later to apologise. The owner thought that it was brilliant and poured them gallons of gin.

"I say old chap, let me demonstrate a slope landing or you"

OK Maybe we formalize this thread and keep it going.... Maybe some guidelines:

C16 has posted an image, he gets to choose the best caption.

The winner gets to post the next image.... after lets say 7 days, this new poster chooses the best caption..... that person now posts a new pic.....

This thread has gone for over a week, if in agreement.... C16, you want to choose a winner/new poster?

Thank you C16. Didn't think it was that funny just something that I would say in that situation.

Noted the new rules decision on the best in a week.

OK there is a suggested caption to this one which is 'Bring your kid to work day' but let us see if anyone can come up with a better one.

Why you should give your child one helium balloon, not 30.
