Slow Salisbury Plain - 11/02/16

Fri 12 Feb 2016, 1:10 pm

Spent a few hours on Salisbury Plain, courtesy of lift from Duncan. Arrived on the plain at around 10 leaving around 2 as the cloud rolled in. Was a slow day which wasn't looking very promising with a Bell 212 and Apache coming close as well as watching a Navy commando Merlin carry out confined landings from afar. Although the day was saved by two Gazelles at 12 and 13:30, the later being the Ripple from MoD Boscombe Down that expertly found pockets of sunlight as the cloud cover rolled in! :worship: That's now 5 trips to SPTA and I've always seen a Gazelle. :cool:

Following some initial general work, the Gazelle proceeded to carry out so sloped landings resulting in land locked images. :cool:
