NATO Exercise "Joint Warrior"
« on: April 26, 2013, 11:38:21 pm »

I was staying with my parents last week in a remote part of the west coast of scotland and to my surprise war ships kept sailing around the headland all week and doing maneuvers in the bay. I looked online when I got back and discovered they were having a big NATO exercise which explains a lot. I took photos of the ones I could that came close enough for my camera but I didnt have the best of cameras with me. There were several I had to look up as I hadent seen them before. Most of them were from the Neatherlands or Scandanavian. I did see a submarine as well but it was way to far out to identify let alone photo. All photos are of non UK ships although one of the hilights was what I think was a frigate come in the bay on a breezy day and first a Lynx came and landed and about 30 min later a Seaking came and landed. It was pretty heavy weather out past the headland so they were obviosly taking advantage of the shelter to land the helicopters.
