Taken in September 1999 on a photographic mission to Kulusuk, Greenland, the weather and the icebergs cooperated in a superb way. The aircraft was on its way back from a sales tour of Canada, which purchased a number for rescue duties.
Taking off from the helipad of the RN frigate, HMS St. Albans. I got special permission to be on the deck at the takeoff, which is quite different from most helcopter takeoffs, much more rapid ascent to clear the ship. Lens at 44mm.
