Gotta love aircraft

I have a long established interest in aviation, so any time that I get to shoot pictures in or around aircraft is a big day for me. Here's a good day...

Helicopters are just so amazing. Having access to a helicopter is like having your own spaceship. You can fly anywhere you want to go at well over 100mph (as the crow flies, which is a lot faster than "as the car drives") and then you can land in the parking lot at the destination.

Of course, these medevac choppers are a good bit larger than your average JetRanger and their downwash will kick up anything that's not as heavy as an anvil and not bolted down.... so you have to be pretty careful where you land one.
