Issue Number 20 January 2012
Happy New Year!
Welcome to the first Grubby Truth for 2012. We've got more new releases for you and a few new updates.
New Print Releases
Pilatus PC-12 Royal Flying Doctor Service
Pilatus PC-12/47E NGs/n 1187 VH-FVB
VH-FVB is a 2010 build PC-12 /47E NG manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. It is powered by a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-67P engine, flat-rated at 1,200 which enable these aircraft to reach 280 knots (322 mph) maximum cruise speed. The RFDS PC-12 aircraft have a medivac fit out with a standard cabin accommodating two stretchers and seating for a Flight Nurse and Doctor.
The Bell 206 JetRanger has had a profound effect on the way helicopters are used. It was inexpensive, efficient, relatively quiet and , having a turbine engine, it was quite powerful
These prints celebrate the JetRanger and Kiowa family of helos in both military and civilian use. You'll find colourful airline markings, TV channel helos, Army Kiowas and civilian machines.
The Australian Army Kiowas are licence-built Bell 206B airframes constructed by Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation and designated 206B-1. They differ from military OH-58 airframes in detail, including a lack of any weapons capability. The CAC built 206B-1 Kiowas are unique in having a double hinged rear port cabin door and a removable door pillar, allowing the loading and carrying of stretcher-bound casualties. In 1971 56 Kiowas were ordered for the Australian defence forces. The first twelve were manufactured in the USA and then re-assembled in Australia with the balance being of Australian construction. Although in common use, the name “Kiowa” does not appear in any official Australian documentation for the aircraft.
The Italeri tow-truck build is progressing slowly. You can see progress at the build log on-site.
