Valhalla Formation from Valhalla 1

Valhalla Formation from Valhalla 1

Postby Duane Hewitt on Wed 17 Jan 2018, 7:36 pm

The last 5 years have seen me working with the Army's Lynx helicopter. It's taken me to some great places, and along the way gathered some memorable photos. Yesterday I was lucky enough to be asked by the crew of Valhalla 1 to join them on the farewell tour, which offered some fantastic views of the other 3 aircraft in the formation, and of those of you that had come out to send the aircraft off. Needless to say the SD card came back somewhat heavy, but here's a selection from the day. More on Flickr.
