Ravens Bay on Kintyre, we were entertained by an interesting conversation on VHF channel 6. An irate local householder was complaining to the Norwegian captain of the live fish carrier (well boat) Viktoria Viking about the noise from a helicopter (G-PGDF an Eurocopter (Aerospatiale) AS350, chartered from PGD helicopters) that was flying out to the ship.
Captain, "I can't do that, the helicopter costs £800 per hour, it would be cheaper for you to go and spend the rest of the day in a nice hotel."
Householder: "Are you saying you that you will pay me to do that?"
Captain: "No, you would need to contact the company, here is their number....."
Householder: "Just how long are you planning to carry on flying that helicopter?"
Captain: "Well our pilot is feeling very healthy today so we will carry on till near sunset..."
