Image of the Week: Merlin HM1 Helicopters in the North Sea

This week’s Image of the Week (featured on page 5 of Flight International), is taken by AirSpace user sunshine band (Keith Campbell). His photo depicts two Merlin HM1 helicopters, ZH856 in the foreground and ZH849 in the rear. Keith says his photo was “taken onboard HMS Illustrious on the North Sea during “Exercise Hairy Funnel” at the beginning of March 2006 when 3(F) Squadron embarked for their last Harrier deployment before re-rolling to the Typhoon.”
