Weather was not very good and there were strong winds as shown on the pictures taken by Francisco HERNANDEZ.

A report that is produced by Makila : "Lama versus B3". It is dedicated to the B3, but it is also a comparison with the Lama. It pays homage to Philippe ROY, Helicoptere Service's Director, who was killed at the controls of a B3 in 2004. Not really happy, but this homage was necessary due to the fact that the subject and mixing of his interviews were completed after his death.

It was an unusual rescue ... Two workers were on a scaffolding that collapsed. They fell off the equivalent of two storeys. As paramedics were unable to reach them, help was asked to Air-Glaciers. So was the Alouette III put into action above downtown Sion !

A musical clip dedicated to vineyard helicopter spraying operations. The action occured at Fully in 2005. The clip was mixed to be included in a Makila produced movie to celebrate Air Glaciers' 40th anniversary. Even if the Lama still officially holds the World Altitude Record, it remains very impressive when it flies 3 meters above ground ...
