Today, I had the pleasure of flying in the Rolls Royce of the Helicopters the EH-101 "Merlin" from the Portuguese Air Force. The helicopter is very comfortable and very stable. I went with some ministers from Europe that are present at the EU Informal Meeting of Agriculture Ministers, during the Portuguese EU presidency in Oporto, northern of Portugal. We fly for about 50 minutes from Oporto to Régua, flying over an amazing scenery the Douro river.
This photo is from the cockpit, the pilot was seated on the right and the co-pilot, a young woman was on the left.
