You seem to have caught it up in the air, right over you! It looks like a police or military helicopter.

That must have been noisy.

Gosh, I guess you heard it before you saw it.
What was going on?

Steffe said...

Nice show to watch I guess.

Whenever I see an image of a helicopter I think of the opening scene of the movie Apocalypse Now.

Wonderful shot VP!
Hey...we were "close"! We were near your place but we couldn't get the right time to visit Livorno!It's a pity!
Next time okay... and I hope we can manage some cappuccino together! :)

Hope they found what they were looking for.

This is a Navy helicopter used during the TAN to carry around some lucky photographers, like the one actually shooting from the open door.
