Hong Kong Air Bell 47J-2A Ranger sight-seeing helicopter VR-HGM (on floats) parked at Hong Kong Harbour (Cheung Chau - VHCH) on 08Feb1974. Photo taken with newly acquired Pentax Spotmatic F camera. I couldn't go for a scenic flight around Hong Kong, because two Lufthansa B747 pilots had hired the helicopter for the afternoon, so they could practice the curved over-land approach to Kai Tak's Rwy 13 (in slow motion!) Were they the Pilots of B747-130 D-ABYB who brought me to Hong Kong the previous day? (D-ABYB was the first civil Boeing 747 to crash!)
