It Was a Dark and Stormy Night (for This Anti-Drug Trade Helicopter)

By Attila Nagy on at

In this spectacular and dramatic long-exposure night shot you can see a Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin helicopter—Dolphin, to its friends—being towed into its hangar aboard Ventôse, a light monitoring frigate of the French Marine Nationale.

The frigate was deployed in the Caribbean Sea on a mission to fight against drug trafficking between January 14th and February 13th of this year. It was certainly atmospheric enough for such a serious operation. [Etat-major des armées/Marine natioanle]
