Eurocopter EC120 Colibri
@San Carlos Airport, San Carlos, CA
Another arrival at the Hiller Aviation Museum’s Vertical Challenge IX helicopter airshow. These airshows were a wonderful opportunity for local agencies, like the Santa Clara County Sheriff, to gather with their rotary winged vehicles. Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters) first flew the EC120 in 1995 and it is still in production. This design was a joint venture between France, China and Singapore partners. Nikon D70s w/80-200 mm, processed with Aperture and CK suite of tools.
