Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Feel free to add.

1. Seen at Groningen's Sportpark Vinkhuizen on 5 May 2015 was NH.90NFH N-318. Good to see this brand new helicopter bringing Jett Rebel.

2. Two hours later at a rainy TT racetrack heliport, AS.532UL Cougar Mk.II S-441 could be seen bringing the band Mainstream in.

So, one NH90, one Cougar and apparantly one artist that rejected heli-transport due to fear of flying. What happened to the Chinook that was said on national radio this afternoon to be used also? (Or was that an example of bad journalism, thinking the type should be used because the journalist/presenter was interviewing a Chinook pilot?)

I also saw photoreports of camo Cougar S-442, so at least two Cougars participated in some way yesterday.
