I see where the helis sold for 517,000 euro. Was there a break down given of what went for what price. Seems there was a bargin got for the Gazelle anyway. If the ALO's go for the tender i wonder what they'll fetch.
317,000 did they get a good deal there. I thought they would have went for more and the gazelle for a round 100,000, did they get 4 with 2 not flying. Even witht the gazelle going for 200,000 still a good deal i think.
the gazelle is a fantastic helicopter the daup is good but costs a shed load in fuel alone and also it is possibly the only place you could get it registerd is in the states on experimental cat
and you cant fly experimental outside the states in eu countries
My point is that what was wrong with these aircraft that the're worth so little after a relatively short lifespan? I'm assuming that their maintenance was first class, therefore the original spec must have been odd? You'd pay more for a similar aged B212.
It just sounds like another instance of very bad value for johnny taxpayer?
