A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be with the Air Corps while they practised firing machine guns at ground targets from their newly delivered AW139 helicopters.
Now for obvious safety reasons we weren't allowed to be in front of the helicopter while it was firing live ammunition but an air to air session was arranged for later in the day when the helicopter fired blanks. (An army tv crew were there so it was more for video than for still shots).
Still, not being a person who turns down an air to air session, I've included some of those shots too.
Target aircraft was AW139, reg 274 and camera ship was Alouette III, reg 213.
Thanks to everyone involved in the shoot and thanks especially to all the people in HQ Air Corps who sanctioned my trip. thumbsup
Anyway, on with the show, here's the pictures, full size pictures can be found here:
