Very nice set, good to see 846 in the new era with the Merlin, spent time on 846 with Sea Kings on Clockwork alongside 845 Wessex back in 83. Thanks for posting :clap:

Very nice on the whole. :up:

However, it must be quite the shock that the rotors seem to stop with an alarming regularity...? :biggrin:

Stunning collection and insight. Can't help thinking that the should have been a degree of 'whitewash' on the airframes..particularly the Lynx, just to keep in true Norwegian exercise spirit.

Not as difficult to the extent you're making out, I can assure you.

Some very nice shots in fantastic light, it would be nice to have seen a little more rotor blur though IMO :smile:
