Black cats

 

To the rear of the Ark Royal's hanger deck was this Lynx Helicopter of Royal Naval Air Squadron 702, in the colours of the squadrons display team. The team puts on a spirited display every year at the Sothport Airshow.

It was quite dark in there and this was hand-held, I did not think that the armed marines would let me use my tripod.

You must have a steady hand Les...I wonder what they would have done if you had got your tripod out!
Les Auld: Clasp camera securely to the body, don't breath and point in general direction of subject then hope. Thanks for the comment Bill.

I love how they batten down the hatches, Les. We wouldn't want it to just float away, would we. smile You clearly got your photo, under the circumstances. Good for you.
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, down to luck and holding of Breath.
Good hand-held shot les, best not to upset the boys in uniform I guess.
Les Auld: Not a good idea at all Brian, thanks for the comment.

..no, they probably thought that you had bad intentions if you used a tripod.. what a sad reflection of our times.
Les Auld: Sad but true Alan, thanks for the comment.
