I attended the Microsoft OpenHack Kafka from the 3rd to the 5th of June in London. I had some free time to do a small visit to the City.ย  As always, my Lumix G7 was travelling with me ๐Ÿ˜†

The first day, when I just arrived, I wanted to visit the Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster. Unfortunately, the Big Ben is under maintenance.ย I couldn’t see it ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ But, I could the chance to shoot the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ US Marine One ! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

When, I crossed the Westminster Bridge in the direction of the London Eye, I saw some helicopters coming from the North East in the direction ofย  the Buckingham Palace.

I am a fan of Aircrafts & Helicopters, I tried to take some shots of the approaching Helicopters. The big surprise was when I looked into the Viewfinder ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† The helicopter heading the group was the “Marine One Sikorsky VH-3D” !! Yeah the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ US Presidential helicopter which was escorted by a military and police helicopters.

I thought it was just a film shooting or something else, but some minutes ago, I heard people talking about the visit of the US president Trump to London, which shows this Daily Mail youtube video:

This is was the first time that I take a picture of something very original ๐Ÿ˜ I thing that we didn’t meet the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ US Marine One ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ everyday ! ๐Ÿคช

Like every trip, here is a small Flickr album:
