This Danske Flyvevåbnet (Royal Danish Air Force) CL604MPA of Esk 721 was temporarily based at Port Victoria (Seychelles International Airport) in support of Operation Ocean Shield, the NATO anti-piracy mission in/near/at/over Somalia. The special modified CL604MPA is equipped with modern sensors, and the MPA - nicknamed the Dhow-Hunter (Dhows are ships used by pirates)- can cover some 75,000 square miles in a single patrol sortie.

A very rarely seen Y12, operated by the Seychelles Air Force. The SAF only operates a few aircraft, during my visit a Do-228, a DHC-6-300 and this Y12. The Y12 was not airworthy at that moment in October 2013, as it was awaiting some Chinese spareparts

Buzzing the shore lines of Somalia near Hafun, a pirate bastion, during the European Union anti-piracy Operation Atalanta. Flying this low at high speed is such fun and very spectacular. But photography during the turbulence (and unexpected movements of the helicopters while avoiding birds) is quite a challenge. Two Cougars were based at the HNLMS Johan de Witt, a Dutch Navy Landing Platform Dock (LPD) amphibious warfare ship for the duration of some five months during the Operation.

The Point of the Spear Squadron, that is the beautiful name of 106sq within the Heyl Ha'Avir (Israeli Air Force). This F-15D Baz shows its huge air brake while landing at Nellis AFB during Red Flag 2015-4. Also clearly seen behind the cockpit is the Israeli modification, a high bandwidth satellite communications system just behind the canopy. The secretive large bulbous R2-D2 like satellite communications dome is only seen on Israeli Eagles.

During Red Flag 2015-4, the Republic of Singapore Air Force participated with CH-47Ds helicopters and F-16C/D jet fighters. The F-16s operate normally from nearby Luke AFB, the reason the look like US Vipers. But this F-16D Block 52 (high spine) shows clearly the Singaporese roundel on the rear of the fuselage.

An Afghan Hip with a protection cover, but still interesting to see this old Mi-8 of the Afghan National Army - Air Corps. The helicopter was assigned to the 337 Regiment in the old structure of the air force. Unfortunately, the construction number was not found on this Mil Mi-8 so its history will most probably remain in silence as the helicopter was most probably scrapped late 2011.
