New Photo of the Week - NRP Corte Real

This week, the Photo won't be from a plane.
I'll be heading to sea...

Exactly one year ago, on the 18th May 2008, NRP Corte Real, a Portuguese Navy frigate was arriving to become part of the Navy Week celebrations at Madeira (included in the celebrations of the Funchal city's 500 Years).

It was indeed a fantastic week, full of activities and a with a naval movement never seen (by me) around here.
The arrival of Corte Real, with a couple of Lynx helicopters on board also marked the arrival of the air branch of the Navy. It would be the first time I'd see Lynx helicopters flying and thanks to the fantastic cooperation of the EHM (Navy Helicopter Squadron) and of CTen Hugo Cabral (also my thanks to Luís Laranjeira) I was able to follow the flights and air activity in a much better way than ever before.

So, some pics of the arrival...
