Via our sister publication @skiesmag and @lloydhphoto: A Royal Canadian Air Force CH-147F Chinook from 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron performed a flypast over the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France on July 21 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, which is widely considered a defining moment for Canada. The victory came at a terrible cost with 10,602 casualties.
Photographed by Lloyd Horgan, the flypast over the National Vimy Memorial brought to an end a successful visit to the United Kingdom by 450 TACHEL Sqn for the first time. The Canadian Chinook, which was making its debut outside of North America, was flown to the UK by 429 Transport Sqn aboard a CC-177, which both attended the Royal International Air Tattoo that was held at Royal Air Forces (RAF) Fairford from July 13 to 16.
After attending the largest military air show in the world, the Chinook was flown to RAF Odiham, home to three RAF Chinook squadrons where Canadian crews had the opportunity to train with their RAF counterparts, which included the joint RCAF/RAF Chinook flight over France and a flyby of the Vimy Memorial, the Normandy Beaches and War Cemeteries where Canadians landed on D-Day during the Second World War.

Another incredible shot from @mediocrepilot – a GoPro frame grab during point protection on the Detwiler Fire near Yosemite National Park. "This is certainly not a fair fight... I can't imagine how these people feel as they abandon their homes, sometimes minutes before the fire overtakes it," he wrote. Cal Fire is now reporting that the fire has destroyed 50 residences and damaged 11 more. Our deepest sympathies go out to everyone affected by the fire. And to all of the crews working to contain it: stay safe!

To kick off your week, here’s an incredible photo by @anthony_pecchi of an Airbus H160, Eurofighter, and A400M in a one-of-a-kind formation flight (also captured in a video for the Paris Air Show last month). Two years in the making, Anthony called it “the most amazing shooting of my life. When we have passion and teamwork, we can do the impossible!” Thanks for sharing with us, Anthony!

Epic shot by @heli_skip of @helinetaviation’s newly acquired Sikorsky UH-60A ESSS Black Hawk, the first UH-60 based in Los Angeles that is specially equipped for the motion picture and television industry. Behind it is another new acquisition, an Airbus AS350 dedicated to the memory of Alan Purwin, Helinet’s late chairman. Full story and more incredible photos to come in the next issue of Vertical.
