Seeing the Augusta westland 101 merlin

I’m not a member right now so I couldnt post this in the plane spotting category and I know it’s a helicopter but It was a brilliant experience and I would like to say thank you to the royal navy and ccf RN section at my school (navy cadets) as its not everyday you get to see the inside of a merlin and watch it take off after at school!

I will edit this post when Ive added a video to YouTube as I can’t add a video to this


I remember this from the FSX Days lol
Glad see another helicopter represented!
