Hello, I recently received my latest copy of Scramble [451] here in the UK. Another great read thanks guys!

I have a question regarding an item in one of the trip reports in Triptease. Under the Monse-Golden Wings Heliport, WA entry is a Sikorsky H-19D [S-55] registered N31611 with the ex military serial quoted as 56-4246.

I have this as c/n 551130 and ex 56-4255 so where did the 56-4246 come from?

As evidence to back the previous ID look at these pages that show the helicopter for sale, which include photos of the log book which state the previous ID as 56-4255.

The FAA agrees with you: http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry ... rtxt=31611

A short update: the sort of MS answer (true but useless :mrgreen: ) is the info came from our subscriber who submitted the report. So far he has not been able to comment on it yet, I know him to be a very busy man. If he does report back to us, I will let you know.

Erik
