Just last week, Gloucestershire Airport welcomed a very special visitor! Dubai Air Wing AugustaWestland AW-139 DU-141 visited the airport on the 5th of July, for a quick refuelling stop. By chance, I was spotting that day, as my friend had his first flying lesson :D
Here are some pictures from the day, taken with the usual Canon EOS 700D and EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM.

Shutting down on the main apron

Off she goes, back to STN (I believe)
HERE’S SOME BONUS SHOTS
My friend on short final to Runway 27, in Aeros Flight Training Piper PA-28-161 Cadet G-EKIR

As always, if you want to see more of my photography, check out my Instagram account:

P.S. @nicochile2 I’ll post the rest of the BHX shots later!
