I have never seen this done with helicopters, Les, so this is a first for me. You got yourself a winner of a shot!
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, the Lynx is the only helicopter that can do a loop as well. The Black Cats do train hard for this.

Cracking shot Les - very close formation!
Les Auld: Their trademark Mike, thanks for the comment.
We had a great day Sunday seeing all this happening, This has captured it just great you can even see the pilots who really know what they are doing!!
Les Auld: Glad you enjoyed it Linda, did you queue for the on=board tour of the Illustrious, I believe over 5,000 people went on board. Thanks for the comment.

I knew you are going to show us some in flight - great picture.
Les Auld: How well you know me Louis, thanks for the comment.
A great series Les. Fantastic capture!
Les Auld: Thanks Richard smile
Now you really must use this one in the club Les, what a great shot.
Les Auld: Maybe Brian but I can just hear the judge saying it is overprocessed. Thanks for the comment.
What a great shot. I've never seen (or even heard of) helicopters doing aerobatics. That must take some doing. Hope you have some more to come.
Les Auld: A great deal of training and practice goes into this Sheila, thanks for the comment.
superb shot Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Tim, appreciate the comment.
Perfectly caught Les
Les Auld: Thanks Bill. Best of a sequence, most were out of focus.

I've never seen the helicopter display team, it must have been amazing!
Les Auld: They are at the Southport Airshow every year Ellie so you do get used to them but they did put on a great display over the Mersey. Thanks for the comment.
So close to each other. Looks very dangerous.
Les Auld: Experts on close flying they are Paul, thanks for the comment.
