Helicopter at Standing Stones

Slide taken May 1994. In connection with picture #25459, I believe this is the helicopter that put the Rover on top of North Gaulton Castle (and presumably took it off again).

In a comment on picture #25418 I said I wasn't in Orkney when they put the Rover on N Gaulton Castle - and now I've just realised the above slide proves the contrary. I think maybe they kept pretty quiet about what they were doing, to avoid crowds and enhance the surprise factor. But if lots of people have photos of the event, I must have been either too badly out of touch to know of it, or simply too idle to go there.
I'm pretty sure I used to think I was becoming a bit forgetful but I can't quite remember.
