Great stuff Kev, I was dog walking along the beach in Sidmouth when it came over there just before it got to you, it certainly entertained fellow walkers, very impressive sight and lovely photos by you.

Great shots again Kev, looks like you’ve arranged them to fly past your house.

Nice setting.

Kev arranging a photo-op'?? I would suggest that any helicopter randomly flying down the coast at Dawlish as Kev is briefly exercising in the exact best location was merely the result of good luck on every occasion!....Probably ;)
PS:- You make your own Luck & with high quality shots like these, it's well worth the effort! :thumb:

Thanks Stewart, well I have dropped the odd hint about coming by now and again, but on this occasion it was pure luck...well apart from the sun going in :grr:
