Finmeccanica AW009

Laughingly first time I saw an SW-4 was the Polish Air Force Academy 'School of Eagles' brought one and an SW-3 to Helitech 2009.

Then the second time was under AW guise still as SW-4 at Heli Expo 2014 (all my photos below from both shows)



and over a fortnight ago the AW009













Though the official video quite nice, especially the test pilot

Any thoughts?

cheers
