OK, here are some old ones (early 1980's). Many thanks to BlenderPilot for hosting the photos!

Me coming in after a night of NVG fun and games at Ft. Campbell, KY...the photo was taken from an AH-1S


The next two I took as a passenger on a Blackhawk going from the old AFB in San Berardino to Ft. Irwin, California.

Just looking back at Nick`s picture of the 101ST Cav on page 1, next to back row on the right--- There`s always one or two who are out of step with everybody else- or, did they know something?

These pictures were posted on a thread about the Mi-24 earlier this year.
Many new members have joined since then and I thought they were worth adding to this collection.


==========================

By Gunship

Here goes my baby


Tx BLENDERPILOT .... after all these hassles with different sites - your really work ! Many many thanks !

Here is one over my "hometown"




Well here is my "rear - end" maybe there are some tail gunners around :o

... Note ... This was for a Parade as we have peace now ... note ... no 80 mm rockets inside the pods
But ... the 12,7 mm - 4 barrell gattling in the nose is ALWAYS loaded


Here is our Mi-24 Runway being used by a Mi-26. It is approximately 300 metres long and at sea level. What you see next to the helipad is a “creek” with seawater and a 5 mile long beach just past it. The forklift is a 20 ton container forklift ... just to get an idea... she is massive !

Thanks to BlenderPilot, here a few shots of the B47 I spray in. B47-G2A. It's equipped with a AgNav GPS, smoker, hydraulic spray system, and Crop Hawk spray computer.



These were taken while spraying winter and spring weeds. This allows the farmer to simply plant the next crop and save valuble soil moisture.




It takes about six minutes to put out a load and then back to the trailer for another one. If all I need is product I can be rolling off the pad in 60 seconds or so. These were taken while carrying 60 gallons of spray. The B47 wouldn't hover up off the ground like the picture shows so we simply pull power and roll off the pad by adding forward cyclic. The brown grass behind the truck has already been sprayed, planted, and the milo is just starting to come up. That's why we sprayed this field with the 47 to keep from injuring the emerging crop.




This is my other ride. A little bit faster and will haul quite a bit more. Working speed is 140 to 150 with 500 gallons.

With many thanks to John Eacott for his trouble, the original images are very low res, so its not Johns fault they are a bit rough round the edges!

Hey Nick!

Any old ABC photos? I clearly remember stepping out during a class break during WOCD and seeing this very cool thing shoot across the sky and then climb very steep and fast. Everyone one of us junior birdmen stood with our mouths hanging open.

The coax thread reminded me.

With yet more grateful thanks to John Eacott, I can now put a couple of pics online from my last job in the military. The first shows what happens when you let Bell engineers work on a Bolkow:



...While the second shows how seriously we used to take formation practice (well, there wasn't much else to do...). Number 3 was sacked for not sorting out his main rotor position.



Ta again John

Thud and blunder, I can't believe that a professional pilot would allow his rotors to be so far out of phase with the other two aircraft, good that you "sacked" him, can't have that kind of sloppy behavior in the unit !

P.S. #2 should have descended 1 foot as well, perhaps a written warning is in order?,

Cool

Just a couple of nice shots on one of those mornings when it's not too bad to get called out early
