Dutch Rotary Action

Post by Hellfire »

A week off work after 5 weeks of photos of helis in the heat, and I choose to spend it taking photos of helis in the cold.

At least the Royal Netherlands Air Force put on a good show during my time getting blasted by the wind.

Great shots of some great achines, but I'll never be able to see a photo of a Chinook from behind without giggling

Glad you provided the landscape to go with 'our' machines. Too bad we only have the flatlands over here
Prepare for the next mission, Darling.
