Gazelle over Larne
« on: March 11, 2013, 09:53:04 AM »
Just seen a Gazelle over Larne and had a complete flashback to the days when they were always out and about along with Pumas, Lynx's, Wessex and the odd Chinook now and again.

Know the feeling. One passed over Lurgan within the last few days and I actually stopped what I was doing to watch it lol.

I am pretty lucky as I see them fairly often still,scooting around BFS-very distinctive sound and shape. :)
