Missed by a Whisker.........!

By teocali
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!
Settings: F/16 1/320sec ISO100 70-200@200mm handheld manual

Thank you so much for your C&Cs on my Cormorant and for your welcome back Smile

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

Perfect shutter speed to blur the rotors a touch on all of them.
A brilliant set of images and very well captured.
