Farnborough 2012 photo: These helicopters are so close they appear to almost touch

The following image was taken during the Finmeccanica group company’s Agusta Westland helicopters display at Farnborough International Airshow 2012 on Jul. 9.

The AW139, AW169 and AW189 are close, but the zoom effect of a 400mm lens make them appear even closer!
