Police Helicopter

This year's airline special set, 4473 Police Helicopter, that we discussed last month is now more widely available and can be ordered from several airlines without needing to fly. Lluis G emailed last week to say he'd ordered it from Air Berlin (by snail-mail, I believe) and now British Airways list it on their High Life shop website, priced at £16.

It's perhaps one of the least interesting airline specials we've had in recent years (police... yawn...) but one that the aficionado of such things will need in their collection (that includes me :-) )

Looking at the picture, I thought this looked like a nice little set, but after checking out the rest of the promotional sets, I can understand why you're disappointed. I especially liked Lucius Malfoy's biplane :)

Is this another one of those Europe-only sets?

Does anyone know how to get one to the Netherlands?
This because british airways only ships to UK,
China airlines only to passangers with a ticket,
and Eva air does not respond to any contact.

Huw, could you please post how to order it from Air Berlin? I was not able to find an online shop or similar.

I've asked Lluis to let us know, and he's said he will when he's back from work later on.

Seems painless ordering from BA provided you are in the UK - there is a £3 postage fee per order.

I 've just ordered 4 (1 for me and 3 for others who cant get it from BA) so if you want one for £17 + postage please send me a message, and I will let you know when I receive them. I will ship worldwide.

Why would anyone want a police helicopter that cost 16 pounds? Some of the other cool planes, sure, but this set is horribly plain.

Hi all,

I bought the set last week at Air Berlin Bordshop. There is no direct website but there is a way to get the catalog and the instructions to purchase. Check this link:

http://www.airberlin.com/jumppages/bordshop.php

On page 3 you'll find the way to order it.

Shipping cost is 3€ in Germany and 9€ within Europe

In the BA staff shop there was a 10% discount - still £14.40. Like most of the inflight retail sets the box is very small, but I'm afraid the set just wasnt tempting. Bought the wife some cheap CKone so she didnt notice all the IronMan3 sets I bought in tesco's on the way home.

Mine have now been delivered (well - collected from the post office). About 2 or 3 day delivery and niceley packed in a box. The members who requested a set will be getting an email shortly.
