Wow, congratulations to all contributors, there are some pretty impressive captures.

Here are a few of mine.

To carry the Alinghi 5 catamaran of the upcoming 33rd America's Cup, the team got a russian Mi-26 helicopter. This Mi-26 brought the catamaran from the fabric to the Lake Geneva where they did the first tests. The helicopter stayed in Lausanne waiting to transport the catamaran over the Alps to the Sea.

Here a few shots if this Mi-26 (click on the photos to get a larger version):

K-7, DA*16-50, f/7.1, 1/100s, 100iso

K-7, DA*16-50, f/11, 1/60s, 100iso

K-7, DA*16-50, f/10, 1/80s, 100iso

K-7, DA*16-50, f/10, 1/60s, 100iso

K-7, DA*16-50, f/10, 1/60s, 100iso

K-7, Sigma 10-20/4-5.6, 10mm, f/8, 1/60s, 100iso

K-7, Sigma 10-20/4-5.6, 11mm, f/8, 1/100s, 100iso

K-7, FA31, f/8, 1/40s, 100iso

K-7, Sigma 10-20/4-5.6, 10mm, f/8, 1/125s, 100iso

Fortunately, three guys arrived to have a closer look as well, so I took a photo to give a scale:

They could be coming in on a short runway or used to coming in on a short runway.
