Amazing storm. I guess that is why Bay of Biscay deserves its "reputation".

Nice photography.

I would not have wanted to ditch that aircraft....

Impressive ...

Loved the irony of the music from Mozart's "Requiem."

That was really amazing! A true testament to the quality of the construction for the time. Are those light houses manned all the time?

That's one of the lighthouses at Ushant at the far northern end of the Bay of Biscay, marking the entrance to the English Channel. It lies to the west of the province of Brittany and the port of Brest. And that particular light is probably one of the most photographed in the world due to the commonness of the conditions seen in Alex's video. posters Guichard Jean - Phare dAr-Men Bretagne

Good helo work; been there with less than perfect results. Holding a chopper steady in high gusty conditions takes a very good pilot and a powerful bird.
