" Helicopter flights from Penzance to Isles of Scilly

End of Scilly’s helicopter link
Economic fears as helicopter axed
The Penzance-Isles of Scilly helicopter service has touched down in Cornwall for the last time after its operator decided it was not profitable.

British International Helicopters (BIH) operated flights from Penzance to Scilly for almost 50 years.

It means travel to and from the islands will now be by plane or ferry, the Scillonian, which runs in the summer.

Emergencies will be answered by the Royal Navy air sea rescue crews and the Cornwall Air Ambulance"

My Fo!rmative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.
,
My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.

    Terrific colour and detail Malcolm .. it’s sad this service is no longer available …. I’d love to have flown in it!

  • Thank you Susie, it’s going to prove difficult for the islanders, the ferry only goes 3 times a week if the wether is calm, same with the plane,
