Sandwich Plain ... Lynx comes to School

Sandwich Plain ... Lynx comes to School

Postby Thommo95 on Fri 29 Mar 2013, 1:28 pm

No not Salisbury plain but my school's field down in Sandwich, Kent.

Anyway on with the helicopter a AAC Lynx AH7,which was doing demonstrations to the Combined Cadet Force cadets based at the school. As I am not a member I didn't get on one of the six 15 minute flights the helicopter carried out during the day. :roll:

The crew were great, hovering against the trees on the school field :clap: , also had a great chat with one of the crew who got left behind on each flight to look after spare helmets. He gave me a great insight into their operational daily life and his deployments to Brunei and Afghanistan!

Anyway on with the pictures;

Shame I didn't have a mono-pod as the lower shutter speeds and the use of the wrong image stabilization caused a few problems, of course comments welcome :smile:

Great photos! Superb to have something like that happen at school. I remember a red RAF Wessex land at ours, back in the day!
