This Picture of the Week has been sent in by crane manufacturer Unic Cranes Europe. The picture is of a 2.9 tonne capacity Unic URW-376 spider crane that is being used to carry out maintenance and repair work on Chinook helicopters at the main British military base at Camp Bastion, Afghanistan and at RAF Odiham in the UK. The Ministry of Defence purchased two of these cranes in late 2012. We are always on the lookout for other great pictures like this as candidates for our picture of the month contest, so please send your entries to the editor firstname.lastname@example.org whenever you have something suitable.
