It's a Chinook

It may be irrational but helicopters scare me. I always imagine the two sets of blades touching one another and then it would be a catastrophe!

Always remind me of the terrible war in Vietnam.

What a great picture David.
I took a picture of a helicopter flying over us (not as low as this i may add !) When i looked at it on camera it was the size of a buzzing bee !!Ah well !

Thanks for your comments.

Nice photo David but a slower speed say 320 /400 would have given the motion blur to the rotors

I might wear Simon Cowell trousers but even I know thats a Chinook. Anyway, try a shutter speed of about 1/125 to get good blur on them rotors, me pie eating mate !!

I may be slighty bald and a retard from Crewe but even i know that's a chinook.
