Coast of libya from the air

Some time ago, photographer Jason Hawkes (Jason Hawkes) went on a trip to Libya, where he had the opportunity to make a helicopter Mi-8 along the Mediterranean coast of Tripoli and several ancient towns, including Sabratha and Leptis Magna. Photographer kindly shared his photos with a broad audience.
