Rotary - Having lived in the South West of the UK for over 30 years, rotary aviation has always been a prominent part of my aviation photography.  I am very lucky to have RNAS Yeovilton on my doorstep, a key airfield for Royal Navy and Army helicopter operations with AgustaWestland Merlin and also AgustaWestland Wildcat squadrons based at Yeovilton. Also not far up the road is the Salisbury Plain training area which can provide some very interesting images as I hope you can see below. Salisbury Plain training area is one of the UK largest and most prominent training area and hosts various military exercises throughout the year and with care you can capture these exercises , but please note that not all areas of the plain are accessible to the general public.
