Two Apache and four Cougar helicopters of the RNLAF were involved in exercise Wildcat Challenge. The scenario consisted of a bridge over the Rijn-Schelde canal which was captured by enemy forces. AH-64 Apaches provided cover while the Cougar brought troops of the Air Mobile Brigade. All happened just after sunset, which made taking pictures a hard job.

Jan and I made our annual trip to the UK to visit the Low Flying Areas and the Royal International Air Tattoo. We were unlucky with minimal low flying and bad weather. Luckily we had a plenty of sunshine and good spot during the RIAT displays.

Bad weather and the crowdline being much to far from runway resulted in only two pictures this day.
