AAC in Northern Ireland

Discussion in 'Aviation' started by Romeo_47, Aug 18, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Would anyone have photographs of there time if they where in Northern Ireland with the AAC. I have a book called Army Avavtion in Ulster which is good but if anyone would help me to see what the views where like from inside a helicopter, or landing at XMG. I would be very grateful if i see even a photograph thanks. :D
     
  2. Bit of an OpSec issue for a newbie - why do you want the shots?
     
  3. I live in NI and i see helicopters everyday since i first saw one i had this thing and wanted to be a pilot. I see the Lynx and Gazzele and sometimes a Puma flying about. As i was saying about that book. I've been reserching photos of the "Clockwork Mouse" and the Scout helicopters in South Armagh. I would like a photogrpah to see what it was like to be in those and an opinion how it was to fly into Bessbrook with the threat of getting shot down.
