Going Commando at North Weald

Commando 534, a Merlin from RAF Benson, flew in on Monday afternoon for a session of circuits. The sun came out too, which was a bonus.

Our Huey was also out on a type rating check flight. The two helicopters made an interesting comparison!

Very nice. Fantastic light for the Merlin.

Really want to see that Huey again this year. :love:

Never understood why the Huey doesn't get more bookings. Such a great looking helicopter. :cool:

Nice Shots! A bit off topic but am I right in thinking that 509 was used in an episode of Ultimate Force when the Special forces were leaving Afghanistan?
