Lovely work, Anton. I really enjoyed looking through those.

Sea King,

Ref 43, probably washing it down after sea water ops?

43 is exactly washing with fresh water in order to remove any salt water sprays that got on the helicopter during sea ops since these are highly corrosive.
All in all wonderful pictures from a skilled photographer. I'm a bit ashamed that being a Bulgarian myself I have photographed mostly RAF and USAF aircraft so far:)

Superb set of shots, Anton :clap: . Again, very difficult to pick a favourite, though I do like no.59.

Are parachutes standard issue for helicopter crew in Bulgaria?

I like the pictures, but I would have preferred to see a "best of" selection instead of posting all of them. 10 pics and link to a gallery would be more interesting, I stopped watching after pic number 20...
