last 2 weeks in 21 pictures...

Just another catch up - hopefully some of it may interest you...

This morning saw a very unusual grey Hellenic Air Force C-130 leave Lyneham..only one arty farty pic of this on airliners.net so obviously quite rare...

Last night was all looking good. Sunset with a Chinook MK3 doing brownouts...but thanks to a dog walker walking right through it, it pushed the helicopter away from me and therefore couldnt really manage a decent shot of it - so close to being so perfect:

Sorry if your sick of this helicopter but a few of the Bell 212 in the woods and joining the crew going through their winch emergency drills...

More to come on my new site later in the month but a few from last week and my new hobby bell chasing...

Sorry for the amount of pics but hopefully a few are interesting!
This new stuff wont be on my site as i'm preparing a new one for 2011 which will be a bit better.

Thanks for looking :smile:

Great work Rick on the 212 and the HAF C-130.

The schedule is for all the C-130s to receive the scheme when they go through depth maintenance which includes a cockpit upgrade Rick. There are at least 3 like this now Rick. Shame about the Chinook...almost. Loely capture on the 212. Looks like you have this one sorted.

Cheers, Ian

Thanks for that Ian. Thanks for the comments, had to delete the ones from Wallop if anyone was wandering where the rest went.
