Different Angles

In NYC, they’re cutting back tourist heli flights, even though the complaints to NYC are miniscule.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, they’re starting tourism ops over objections in Goa, India.

Go Figure.

Summer at Martha’s

Flew some customers out to the airport at Martha’s Vineyard island in June.

After cleaning up for the next leg and taking a break, I looked back and the angle of light, colors just made it look interesting, like a cutout form against blue construction paper.

Suppose you could call this ‘just another helicopter on the ramp shot’.

But if you’re an aviation fanboy, this could be a dramatic opening shot to an exciting dramatic enchantment!

Or something.

Anyway, it’s an S-76B that I’ve flown since about 2000, off and on, parked while waiting for passengers, in, Massachusetts I think, back in late Spring or early Summer. With plenty beckoning blue sky around and an airplane in the background.

An idling Bell 430 helicopter at night with swirly colors from aircraft lights and heliport lights reflected in cowlings and main rotor, using a slow shutter speed.
