VH-VTN Eurocopter AS350B3 Squirrel (MSN 4527) operated by Geotech Airborne Pty Ltd, at Meekatharra Airport - Fri 31 March 2017. Used for airborne geophysical survey - the transmitter-receiver loop in the foreground is part of the VTEM (Versatile Time-domain Electro Magnetic) system, used to detect variations in the Earth's magnetic field to find minerals below the ground surface. A magnetometer is attached to the line above the transmitter-receiver loop - this can be seen resting on the ground to the right of the helicopter. The helicopter carries this loop and magentometer as a sling load. Photo © Geoff Carberry
