Golden Oldies Truck Club Helicopter Scenic Flight

What a way to spend about 22 minutes of a wonderfully sunny and cloud free Saturday morning!

This is the beautiful Robinson R44 helicopter, owned by Helicruz Orange, that I was previledged to be the very first passenger for the day in at the Golden Oldies Truck Club Truck & Tractor Show on Saturday August 7, 2010 - the first time in a piston engined helicopter after getting used to a Bell 206B-III JetRanger turbine helicopter. The pilot was really good - shared yarns and I showed him a few things around the town.... like my work, all the odd stuff around North Dubbo and more! Well worth the money if you can do it! Helicruz is a highly recommended company for scenic flights - contact the Orange branch on 0438272441 or go to

Today I thought I would share this photo - it is of a pair of ERF EC127 DDEC's owned by Cawley Brothers of Cludwyr, Ireland.

Both are powered by the extremely popular North American Detroit Diesel Series 60 rated at either 370hp or 430hp with 13 speed RoadRanger transmissions and Meritor drive axles and (in the case of T515 JCC) a midlift steer axle!

Thanks to Dave Gothard for the photo and reply on these wonderful trucks - just goes to show that not just American trucks do not get the S60 Detroit, but the best of the Brits can beat them at their own game!

Business Recommendations

Just a quick post (which will always be added to when I hear more good reports about businesses in Dubbo and diistricts)!

First cab off the rank is a new limousine business in Dubbo: Pristine Limousines. Owned and operated by the Towers family, Pristine Limousines has a distinctive limousine: a $180,000 stretch Dodge Nitro wagon which seats 13 people! Good for a buck's night or things like that, the Nitro is a ideal vehicle in which to travel to your event in style! Also available is another Nitro, this time it's a sedan version! Call Pristine Limousines Dubbo on 02 68854651, email them or visit

Next is a fairly new helicopter business based out of Orange called Helicruz - I was fortunate enough to be first passenger in their beautiful Robinson R44 helicopter yesterday and would recommend them to anyone! Helicruz is a highly recommended company for scenic flights - contact the Orange branch on 0438272441 or go to
