Trans Down

 

Trans down mode of AFCS requires the helicopter to fly down over sea automatically to pick up survivors. Its amazing how beautifully this is executed. I was impressed with this flight mode and imagined this scene with a few reference pics.

Dhruv Coasting

 

Last couple of weeks, I was fortunate to do flight trials for HAL's Advanced Light Helicopter (Dhruv) for Coast Guards, out of Chennai. It was a pleasure to see the awesome work undertaken by ICG. It was nostalgic to fly over Chennai and the adjoining coast and Bay of Bengal. The CG Dhruv looked so beautiful with its blue and white colours.

Flight Hangar- A study

Rustic Bouquet

Flowers, especially a bouquet of vibrants coloured ones, is a painters delight.  Loved this rustic arrangement which i came across on the web.  Challenge was to preserve the vivid contrasting colours and yet make it look elegant while not using white :-).
