Airwolf!

The helicopters rise in formation over the airfield at the Virginia airshow.

When they came creeping up ove the trees, it something like a rescue scene from a war movie, and one almost expects to hear the "rescue" music, when you see this.

This is my Skywatch Friday contribution - if you'd like to see the skies around the world, hop over to the official Skywatch Friday site.

First, my apologies for a bit of cut and paste commenting. I have been doing the rounds via Bloglines and looking at all the pictures from my favourite photo blogs, but haven’t been leaving comments. Generally, I try to comment as much as I can (I know how good it is for ‘morale’ to know that someone is out there appreciating them), but after the birth of my second son, I am a bit knackered to think up something witty and insightful on the hop. Thus the resort to Control+C and Control+P!

Apocolypse now, the scene with the helicopters to the doors scene came straight to mind. Excellent capture.

I always admire the skill it takes to fly in formations.
