What's funny is when I am forced to drive into OK... I wonder and marvel at the lack of access roads... There are none... Exit the highway at 70 and turn into X store... or take an exit and drive about 11 teen miles back into no mans land for gas...

Once you get the hang of them it's great. I think of it as "pit road"

Doug will know what I'm talking about.

yeah, i hate this system here in abilene. i missed my 1/2mi prior exit too many times, so i just stay on the access roads. :rolleyes:

:facepalm: Rotorheads...

It was an attempt to do a full landing but the earth was repelling the vibrations...
Chris and I have been over this before... Ten thousand loose parts flying in close formation is not an aircraft...
















































Actually, Having worked on helicopters as a medic and flying on them to work all the time, I'm simply amazed what they can do in the hands of a competent and skilled pilot...

Fixed for you... I took the controls of a Bocal <<, not sure of the spelling... for close to an hour one time... level straight flight at the time. i was the last one left on a crew change and they couldnt carry everyone on the big bird, so they sent this thing out... For all I know it was on autopilot, and I was just mimicking the AP... :iono:
