Request Help Id'ing These

Tue Dec 11, 2012 7:54 pm

Hi all,

While on a cruise, I recently shot (among others) these two.
Both are not a.net quality but still, I'd like to know what I have here.  

This Il was inbound to Eilat/Israel (actually shot from Aqaba/Jordan). The reg looks like 3 figures.


And these 2 mil. helis were lining up on rwy 34 at Doha/Qatar.


Any attempts at id'ing these are much appreciated.

Markus

The helicopters are Westland Commandos of the Qatar Air Force, they are land versions of the Sea King.
