I was going to post "Why has that Merlin got 28 or 78 squadron markings?" but then I realised it was a Danish example! :oops: Anyway... Great photos as always! :clap: But the Chniook HC3 is so ugly!

A really good set which I enjoyed looking at.

I like the HC3 a lot and can't wait to photograph one.
Why so serious?

Nice sharp set of photos in lovely winter sunlight. No.4 is my favourite of the bunch.
Nothing wrong with the photos but there's something about the HC.3s that just doesn't look 'right' to me. Maybe they just don't look Chinook-shaped enough.... :smile:
