Those Cougar shots are simply stunning, a great varied collection of shots.

Excellent shots of the Cougar and good to see they have repainted some of the Su-25s since August. The double seaters especially look a lot better now!

Welcome John, and Top Bombing Rich! :topbombing:


I too would like to welcome you on board John. I have seen one or two of your 'choppers' before and I shall look forward to your first post....whenever that may be. I was chatting last night to a chap called Vince who said he knew you from somewhere...small world!

As for the Cougars Rich, marvellous. Shame the Mi didn`t follow this one in. SU-25 are of course lovely. Would have been even better on the flight line...next time perhaps.

Cheers, Ian

Fabulous Set there Rich,

Lots of stuff there I've never seen, only just getting into military!!!!
Love the (stands by for p*** taking) what I'd call Pumas....presumably Cougars?

The Northolt images are all fantastic as well, can't pick between them, looks like you've had a fine week :smile:

Cheers,
Jeff.

Hi Rich

Like those Cougars, but the Frogfoot's look stunning... :clap:
Good to see that the Su-25 are still in active and that not only the ones for the air show where repainted.

Cheers Ronald
