Prowlers In Northumberland

Post by dannyboyo20 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 3:50 pm

Hi all, a selection of images from Exercise Lightning Force 2020, taken at Otterburn Training Area in Northumberland. 6x 653AAC Apache deployed for this ex, but cut short their deployment due to the then impending storm Ciara.

Cheers, Danny

Hi
This post has to be one of the best set of exercise images I have seen.
Great action shots and light.

All the best
