Suez Canal November

I took these on the 18th of November last year while transiting through the Suez Canal - please bear in mind the surface to air shots were taken with no planning and with the "benefit" of a few lunchtime beers!

First of all - the perfect "passing"shot -just a little slower than usual

I even managed to get some prop-blur.

Thanks Maisie - with c.1300 views and only 1 comment I think I might contact the Guiness book of records!

You're not even close. :whistle: Shouldn't one of the boats be inverted for the perfect crossover shot? :hide:

Where's this thread been hiding!?

Neat catch, Iain! A sight rare as hell, that. Hope you're well and enjoyed the trip, mate. :up:

First time I've had internet since Tuesday. Hello from Cadiz!

What a rare gem of a chopper!

Cracking capture.
