A series of 4 shots by the RN Black Cats Lynx Helicopter Display Team at Shoreham last month. Pretty daring stuff for these rather unwieldy machines which are so tricky to fly!

Took me ages to figure out that #1 was two helicopters.

Perfect shutter speed to blur the rotors a touch on all of them.
