        Very good picture taken with your Canon GX7.

        With the tail code HH and the squadron written under the S in the MARINES on the side there (HMH-366), this tell me that you took a picture of a Sikorsky CH-53 Super Stallion. (Not only that, because as you might understand, I already knew what type helio it was ;-) ).
        The HMH-366, or Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron-366, has its home base at Marine Corps Air Station New River and their nickname is The Hammerheads.
        And needless to say; nice shot! :-)

      Thanks for the comments and for identifying the typ and home base! That's way more information than I managed to find.

      Did you also notice the guy in the side-window that appears to be waving to me?

      This day, I didn't bring my big Canon with me so all I had at hand was the Powershot camera. The camera is excellent in many situations but when it comes to images where I have to zoom, DSLR is the best option.
