Friend in Hawaii took (make that "sent") these pics. Anyone know the story behind this?. He took off on vacation before he could tell me but it looks like a promo or recruiting idea. [url]www.pbase.com/glangston/eagle[/url] Photos and gallery deleted.

when did your friend take these pics? this month?

Jesus, how many times is it now. First they were Hinds in A-stan....now Hawaiji... If i recall it belongs to the Czech Air Force, nowhere bloody near either of the above places.

Hey, those look like the same helicpter that a friend's freind took. Even looks like the same angle and timing. Your friend wasn't a Golden Knight too was he? Jake

Friend is retired and is an amateur photog who lives in Kaneohe, HI. He just sent them before heading over to the mainland on vacation so I am assuming they came from his camera and were taken in Hawaii. He has a background in publishing and advertising and I doubt would represent something as his work that was not. Golden Knights was my guess too.

Nightstalker, take a look at this thread: [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=139521[/url] You might find its contents interesting. We now have a former Golden Knight and a retiree/ photographer claiming two different sources for these pics.... So far I know who I'm betting on, not too mention that I hosted these a while back......... Jake

Just four hours over an entire week since the thread from captainpooby on this.

Like I said I "assumed" he had taken the pics. Obviously I'm wrong but he only had a cryptic "fantastic paint job" in his e-mail with the pics and had never sent me any pics that were not his. My mistake not his. Anyway, gallery pics have been deleted.

I've seen a web site for a European air show (1998, I believe), and photos of this helicopter were included. It was apparently part of the Hungarian Air Force display. DrMark
