Post your Pumas...

Postby TonyO on Sun 04 Sep 2011, 9:01 pm

Haven't done one of these for a while, but I thought we could do another seeing as we are getting into the Autumn.

Post any Puma images you want, whether it a Puma, Super Puma, Cougar, EC225 or EC725 and whether its built in France, Romania the UK or in Indonesia.

Rules are three images per post, but as many images as you want. It would be great if you could provide an explanation as to where and what you have snapped!

So go on...post away!

Great start Rick, and Kev I have so been waiting to see these, fantastic to see the Turkish Cougars you got at Cigli West!

Here's a confined Cat, somewhere out on the Plain!

Really wish I got a better angle on this one, easily the rarest Puma I have snapped...Royal Saudi Naval Forces doing a ground run at Marseille.
