Photo Comment

'Polair 34' is the only single-engine chopper in the Victorial Police Air Wing fleet. It doesn't seem to come out much, so it was good to see it taking the sun this day. It's used for training and utility work and replaced an earlier Squirrel by the same name that was written off in an accident in 1991. This one is a 1987-model and was registered in Australia on 22 October 1991.
