GLV5 is a low flying area for helicopters not too far from my home town. The challenge is, to capture the helicopters the way I want without disturbing the flying exercises. The environment can be hazardous for the camera and other gear due to a lot of sand spreading around caused by the rotor down wash.

The helicopters visiting the area on a regular base are the Apache, Cougar and Chinook. It's very rare to see other types but yet they do visit the place and are not only Dutch machines.

Enjoy the albums.
