I was present at Baldonnel on Tuesday 28th November for the official unveiling of the new AW139 helicopters for the Irish Air Corps.
I was lucky enough to fly in one of the AW139's in the company of the Minister for Defence no less! I was also fortunate to get up for some air to air sessions with the AW139 as well.
Unfortunately poor light and bad weather didn't help things (ISO 800 and even 1600!), that and the fact that my IS got knocked off sometime during the evening didn't help matters.
Anyway, here's the best from the day, I think there's a good selection of piccies here, all feedback is welcome.
Large versions of these piccies can be found here:
Thanks for looking.
Incidentally frank I was extremely impressed with a shot of yours on A.Net recently of the KC135 oversteering down a wet runway. That is a classic photo!

Thanks for the feedback on the pictures, sorry for not responding earlier, I didn't get any reply notification emails.
Cosmic, thanks for the comments on the picture on A.net ( it's actually a B707 NATO AWACS trainer) it was quite windy (and wet!) that day.
