    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.

    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

  5. 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.

    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.
