Police choppers over Krakow (with some air-to-air)

Hi guys,
I'm not sure if such topic can be placed here but Police is something like army - right?;)
As you probably know Krakow will not host any Euro2012 game however three teams (England, Holland and Italy) have chosen this city as their base for the whole tournament. Due to this fact Krakow is called "fifth host" of Euro2012 in Poland. Last week Police special units equiped with two choppers (Sokol and Kania) conducted some tactical training in various locations in the city center. Here are my photo report:

Yet another great round of pictures from you, very good pictures of a interesting subject. Also beyond the Helicopters and men the scenery below is very interesting. What is the monument in picture 17?

Cheers Rob :rock:

A nice selection of shots, I especially like the one over the Wawel. Krakow is a cool place, one of my favourite cities. :smile:

Thanks for comments!
The Kosciusko’s Mound - named after Tadeusz Kościuszko - Polish (and US) national hero, it is surrounded by stronghold (one of many in Krakow) erected by Austrians in 19th century.
