Gorgeous photograph this one, featuring a Boeing 747 operated by Thai Airways International at Phuket airport in Thailand. The picture was taken by AirSpace contributor ApisitiJ. Flightglobal's Ascend database records the airline as operating 16 of the passenger jets, with a further two converted to freighters.
British and French combat helicopters recently got together for a Joint Warrior exercise in the UK, which coincidentally also provided an excellent photo opportunity. Staged at West Freugh airfield in Scotland, the manoeuvres included using British Army Apaches and French army Gazelles to escort Royal Air Force Chinook transport helicopters carrying troops into a simulated combat zone, with the services taking turns in leading the offensive. Other participants shown in this 16 Air Assault Brigade-provided image are Lynx and Puma aircraft from the respective services.
