As for motive, I think there´s too much non-aircraft space in the image. There is not an aircraft/helo that stands out as the main subject of the image, and the only one that is shown in full is pretty covered by people. Also, find that the two guys approaching are quite distracting. They distract the eye from the overall pic, not only because their faces can clearly be seen, but because of the fact that they are moving towards the camera.
Then, in other issues, I find it quite overexposed, as already said, and the colours are off, as well. Too much of a magenta cast that I can´t say whether it´s normal for a slide-scan or not.
Hope it helps!

Thank you all for the feedback!
It looks indeed overexposed (a lot of my slides from that collection are this way ...about 30 years ago, all settings on manual and the white concrete ramp under full sun did not help much...). The old slides from this collection seem to have suffered more (i.e. deteriorated more, certainly in the whites) than others... I will keep it for my personal collection (I have no regs anyhow).
PS: Most of my slide-scan have indeed a magenta cast, and I do my best to edit it correctly, but I am not always successful
