Hawkeye Challenge; Axel, December 8, 2009

Integration Exercise Hawkeye Challenge; Text and Photograph's by Alex van Noye

Helicopters of the Dutch DHC were practicing at the airfield of Axel in Zeeland on Tuesday, December 8, 2008. I was present during this exercise. The name of the exercise was Hawkeye Challenge. The Apache who participated in the exercise remained at high altitude and therefore I didn’t saw them. I only got Chinooks in front of my lens. The Chinooks in this environment looked good. The Chinooks both landed on the grass strip of the airfield. The major part of the exercise took place during the evening hours. This gave me the opportunity to capture the Chinooks in the darkness. A unique experience which not often occur. The photo quality was therefore good.
