I captured this image from the deck of the Red Funnel ferry, Red Eagle in early November 2006 when travelling across the Solent towards Cowes on the Isle of Wight. I believe the crew were on an exercise as I did not see any vessel below the helicopter. What I find fascinating is the heat plume from the engines of the helicopter.
