SH-2G Seasprite, 6 Squadron, Royal New Zealand Air Force
No. 6 Squadron Royal New Zealand Air Force operates Kaman SH-2G (NZ) Seasprite helicopters for the Royal New Zealand Navy. This multi purpose helicopter conducts a variety of tasks, including surface and sub-surface warfare missions, surveillance operations, search and rescue and aero medical evacuation. I always find helicopters look the most menacing from head on and on this occasion knew this was the angle I wanted to photograph the Seasprite from. With the helicopter turning in hard towards me the clouds behind created the perfect backdrop I was after to capture the feel of this aircraft I was seeking.
