Yes. And I stop and listen when i hear one.
Just a pilot (retired, so I have a LOT of time)...

I noticed the ENG chopper out here in OKC is a 407 and thought that was pretty cool. Then I turn on the local news and see the dude chasing tornado's for the 5 o'clock news!
I guess that figures why they pay for a 407.

Lol yes! Want to know type, then company and finally who do I think could be flying it.
If traveling away from home - want to know if I could stay forever and work there.

Do I look up?
The question seeks to discover if we have maintained our erstwhile enthusiasm, I guess. Now I am retired, do I still give a d*mn, eh?
Well, put it this way. Ask my dogs. They'll tell you.
It kind of goes like this:
1. distant sound of choppy approaching.
2. (loud exclamation from Master, wakes up dogs) (E.g. "Yippee...!")
3. Chair falls over.
4. Coffee goes flying. (that's a regular)
5. Master bolts out the door. Possibly tripping over alarmed cat.
6. Spends several minutes oohing and aahing, and muttering excitedly to himself.
7. comes back in, humming and happy.
8. Dogs shake their heads, and go back to sleep.
9. cat tries hard to look unruffled and dignified. Gives Master a hard look. Moves back to favorite spot.
(rinse, wash & repeat later)
