Sherlocks Mind Palace Helicopter. #1 TFP(on the island-S4) #2 HLV (Appledore-S3) #3 HLV (in air-S3)

If you have a helicopter in your mind palace, (and who doesn’t) best to rent it from the #1 VIP helicopter company in the UK. 

Aircraft Numbers (from the FAA website)

‘The U.S. received the “N” as its nationality designator under the International Air Navigation Convention, held in 1919. The Convention prescribed an aircraft-marking scheme of a single letter indicating nationality followed by a hyphen and four identity letters (for example, G-REMS). The five letters together were to be the aircraft’s radio call sign.

Not surprisingly, Great Britain received G as its aircraft nationality identifier under the 1919 agreement.’

Aiviation call signs/Wikipedia

‘In most countries, the aircraft call sign or “tail number”/“tail letters” (also known as registration marks) are linked to the international radio call sign allocation table and follow a convention that aircraft radio stations (and, by extension, the aircraft itself) receive call signs consisting of five letters. For example, all British civil aircraft have a five-letter call sign beginning with the letter G.’

The numbers on the fusilage are unique, meant to indentify the aircraft and are fireproof in order to hopefully remain somewhat undamaged in case of fire.

So, you know, “Hi, uh, CAM? Oh right, he’s dead, I shot him in the face. On yeah, now I remember. Oh well, anyways, can I borrow his helicopter? Just for awhile. Yeah, I have to go see my sister. Yeah, I’ll bring it right back, promise. Thanks, you’re a doll.”

The helicopter that drops of Moriarty has no letters that I can see. Have we gone over this before? Let me know if this is already a well known topic.
