yep, just a little bit bigger. Do they still have to have a NH pilot along with them or are we permitted to go alone yet. Not sure I like all the black checkers around the windows and doors. And then image 14 shows some aircrew safety equipment, especially his helmet just plonked on the tarmac.
Great to see the NH90s officially 'launched'. Shame they can't have been in service with the F16s, if that bit of upgrading had gone ahead there'd be not so much of a recruitment/retention problem methinks. Never mind, better this than nowt. Great pics thanks very much :-)

On the 3 news article I watched a RNZAF Top Brass say that the NH-90 will be used only when needed and spareingly so does mean that 8 NH-90s will still do the job that 14 or so Hueys do and will the NH-90 hours flown over a year be less than the Hueys hours??? I can understand the small Huey sniffing around for the green weed grown in the bush but I cant see a near on $100 million NH-90 being used for such task or will that be up to the smaller Mako???
