Photo Comment

Departing as 'Cobra' (what else?) on a demonstration flight during the Australian International Airshow as a Galaxy is towed down Runway 18 to the southern park. This Sea Cobra was operated on lease by Bell during the airshow as a demonstrator in the Australian Army's ARH contest, ultimately won by the Eurocopter Tiger.
