It's Hip in Finland

It's Hip in Finland

Postby Jonesy on Thu 02 Sep 2010, 2:34 pm

I had the opportunity to fly with the Utti Jaeger Regiment in Finland back in May as part of my Hip hunt. Only two Mi-8T's are flying with the Regiment and will soon retire since the NH-90 is replacing them.

A good article about the introduction of the NH-90 into Finnish service has just been published in Airforces Monthly. :whistle:

Fantastic images through and through and I'm guessing a great experience.

Very nice Neil, article is pretty decent too :)

I'm sure you can manage to get over to Poland and shoot some of their Hips.
