Charles de Gaulle visit (25 images)

Postby lazyweasel on Thu 12 May 2011, 4:26 pm

In January I had the opportunity to spend seven days on board the Charles de Gaulle, sailing from Abu Dhabi to Goa during the 'Agapanthe 2010' deployment. It was my first opportunity to try out the 1D Mk4 and it was worth the wait!!

Fantastic set. :clap:
Particularly like the Etendard photos 17, 18 & 19. Nice seeing how the catapult is fitted to the Etendard. Looks an interesting set up.

One of the most dramatic set of aviation in action photographs for a long time, they take you right into the action on the carrier deck - brilliant Sean , thanks for sharing
