I have always wished for a ride too! A ‘flip’ was the closest I got and I LOVED it! Not sure I could stomach a copter ride though… Gorgeous pics, Col!
I keep hearing euphemisms for this machine . . . let me spell it out . . . it’s a brick with delusions of flying.
I have never been in a big fan! I am bit too chicken 🙂
My neuro owns a helicopter and he proudly displays a picture of it in his office. They are pretty amazing things, I’m always in awe when I see one
Incredible the way they work. I had a radio-controlled model which gave me great fun in learning to manoeuvre it.
One of my all time favourite things – helicopters (although I must admit I’ve never thought of them as big fans 🙂 ). Best go off to yesterdays post to see what the caption thing is all about.
You’re a big fan of what you have never thought of as being a big fan? Well, blow me down! 🙂
Great shots and caption Col. Just like you I’ll stick to taking the photo’s…not riding in one of them. I love mother earth too much..hehehe
I would love the experience, I must admit, just as I did being at the controls of a microlight.
Fantastic post: I love helicopters and can never get enough of them. Was it near your home? You live in a colourful world, Col!
We did a helicopter tour over the Badlands of North Dakota several years ago. Such a great way to fly ~ zooming in to take a closer look, zooming out to get the panoramic view.
But, oh, the noise, noise, noise, noise, noise. 😯
Lovely pics, Col. I’ve only been in a helicopter once, and that was over Vic Falls. Worth every penny and arms and legs too. 🙂
I can’t vote; one of them is mine, and I have a slight bias.
Didn’t you read the bit where I said voting for self was fine? I’m sure you would only if you thought it was genuinely better than the others.
Yes, but someone giving me permission to be who I am not does not change my behavior.
. . . and of course mine is better than the others; I wrote it!
Not doing in Rome what the Romans do might be considered impolite?
And apart from the Caption Competition and the posts and the comments and … and … what have I ever done for you? 🙂
You told me my writing was passable. It meant a lot to me.
. . . OK, I’ll go vote . . . let me fire up my random number generator and tune it to pick my entry.
More than, by far.
Was that you up there.?
Alas, no. I priced five minutes, and decided I wanted to keep both my arms and legs.
