Avalon International Airshow 1999 - This was one of the candidates for the Australian Army Attack Helicopter. The Denel Aviation, Rooivalk is Afrikaans for "Red Falcon". As we know, it wasn't successful in the bid, as the Eurocopter Tiger attack helicopter won. Though in hindsight, maybe this would have been the better option, or the obvious Apache? Sadly the aircraft wasn't quite lined up to the marks on the tarmac after it's handling display... This image has been scanned from 35mm transparency film.
