A helicopter joy ride is soooo exciting. The feeling of being inside a machine that lifts off the ground and goes strait up...instead of running forwards is an amazing sensation as is the feeling of a machine that swivels about while remaining in the same aerial position. The elevation level allows for excellent viability to the ground so that a minute seems like 10 minutes at least. A helicopter is sheer engineering genius. I've fallen in love with them. Mary
When in Military, travelled by 'Chinook'. I love flying, so this was fantastic! Loadmaster let us 'peek over' ramp!
When at 'El Questro', flew in ''open' helicopter up Chamberlain Gorge! I was strapped-in very well, but had to 'hang out', holding onto L roof-rim to get my photos!
When going to stables there, for horse riding, heli was going there at same time, pilot said 'hop in, I'll take you', so it's the first time in my 'horsey' life I've arrived by heli! Felt rather 'Royal' doing that! Could get used to it, very easily!
