Love these themed threads. Such a nice array of images from people.

I guess this fits in here.

Super images :-)

I wanted to get a good shot of the Hind 'Special' but, unfortunately, had to leave early on departures day as we had a long drive up to Anglesey for the second leg of our holiday. I had inside info that the Hind, US Apache and Blackhawk were staying on base until Tuesday, but the person who told me also said they were to be moved over to the North side but didn't know when. Unfortunately, they moved just as we were waiting downstairs in the FRIAT tent waiting for the walking bus :-( Oh well, managed to get them on the arrivals just not great light :-(

Will add a few of mine when I get round to editing them :-)

Thanks, you may like this image then too? I had also packed away and started to load the car having given up on the Mil-24, then the rotors started turning... so a mad rush to get it all back out and set up again!
