Apache

By gwynn56
was looking for an upload as a contribution to Saturday shadows , unfortunately couldn't pick one , so thought can't find the shadows will Hank do Wink
this taken at the airshow at Waddington I seem to of lost the colour out of it apart from that bit of blue , not to worry though you may not like the image perhaps the link to Hank playing the guitar be more pleasing

A rather menacing aircraft, fitted with that array of missiles as it is, and set against the encroaching grey clouds the menace element seems enhanced.

Certainly shadowy, and menacing, so it's perfect for a Saturday.
Moody and with drama, well done.

A nice image.
One thing which I hope will help you.
Please control shutter speed.
You need approx 250 of a second, or less.
To keep rotter blades with motion other wise it looks like cotter going to fall to the ground.
It sharp clear and has detail.

it does indeed look menacing.

The Apache AH64. I don't think it's the Longbow version - the radar pod above the main rotor is out of sight, but it seems less "bristley" and also seems to have a pair of Hellfires, when I would expect a longbow to be carrying more.
I'm not an expert, but it wonder if it has TOW-2s outboard, and Hydra70 pods, or extra cannon pods inboard. Hard to tell. Can anyone confirm?
Of course it has the 30mm cannon slaved to the helmet, a powerful weapon and uncanny in action. The FLIR and optical pod on the nose signals it's great ability.
