One of 3x Air Mauritius Jetranger III's on the Island. Seen here undergoing pre-flight checks before departing on a site seeing tour of the island. I wish I could have had a ride in this chopper, but they charged £500 for a 30 minute site seeing charter for up to 4 passengers! Presumably, the gas cylinder beneath the chopper is to supply floats located on the stands in case there is a problem while over water and they have to auto-rotate and ditch in the Indian Ocean (Canon 350D + 24-85 USM)
