Hey all,

 

John stopped in today on this way home in his AStar B3.. it was great to see him.. i have posted a couple of photos here but you can see more on my photo bucket link below...

 

It is so cool to watch people move on in this industry.. this guy earned his dream.. and you can too, but it takes hard work and focus...

Thanks Clay. I have an old army pilot that is making me premature grey. You know the type, been there done that...except he can't do anything without screwing it up.

 

Disclaimer: All of you old timers that are going to beat me up now...I have tons of old army pilot buddies that are awesome pilots...the one at my base, not so much.

Great pics as usual Dp.

 

I really like the 407, the A109, and even the Astar, but there is something about the 500 that just makes me drool.

 

Guess its because that was my first love. TC's Island Hoppers MD500D. Anybody else have the same reaction?

Yep! Nothing like a 500. I noticed the front left gear fairing is missing, is that for the utility work baskets?

 

 

sorry for the delay on this answer.. crazy busy at the hangar..

 

yes, they removed the fairing for better viz, they said that it doesn't make a lot of diff on the 100' line but on the 50 it gives them about 4' more vis at the bottom..
