Aerial Survey – 14 May 2019

For those who may have wondered what all the helicopter activity was over Rosedale West on Tuesday 14 May – it was an Aerospatiale 350B aircraft belonging to the PDG Group based in Inverness who carry out surveys of power lines for the National Grid.

G-ORKY – nice registration. Perhaps President Putin is looking to invest in Rosedale?
