#4 and the last one for me - love the angle and perspective of that shot. Top notch all round, those Cobras are beasts.

Lovely stuff, do the AH-1s have a new suffix now they have the new exhausts, and what about the 412, didn't even realise the Marine Corps had any?

Great light and shots :clap:

Fantastic light on some lovely subjects and very nicely shot :clap:

Are they on part of a military complex or somewhere off base?
