American Eurocopter EC120 B
@ San Carlos Airport, San Carlos, CA
Shot with my pre-DSLR Panasonic DMC-FZ30 during the 2006 Vertical Challenge helicopter airshow put on by the Hiller Aviation Museum. This beauty serves with the Air Support Unit (ASU) of the San Jose Police Department. The EC120 was jointly designed, and first flown in 1995, by Eurocopter working with Chinese and Singaporean partners.
