Lift job in San Jacinto, California

41 air conditioning units onto the roof of a new Walmart.

3000lbs in the air.


Time to get the water truck out....


Back on the trailer.


A delicate job getting back on the bed though.
The sides pull out and we put down boards about 2 feet wide to give a helping hand. She's tied down and ready to go home.

We can fly her home, but she is a restricted category, so *technically* we can't fly over built up areas etc.

The main reason however is for keeping the cost down for the customer. By eliminating the flight ferry time we are way cheaper than doing it with a crane. Simple economics!

Going into LAX


Over the runway at 1500 feet, then a steep approach round the tower to the pads.

Helicopter tours, Hawaii - originally posted by Gordy on another thread.


Napali coast, Kauai


Honopu beaches
To give an idea of size, the left beach is about 1000 feet long.

Question Links not working correctly

I have been having a few problems with the Photo Gallery in that sometimes up to a quarter of the images on some pages are not displaying all i get are red X's.

A red x shows until a picture is downloaded.


The time pictures take to download depends upon the speed of the site hosting it and upon the speed of your own connection.

Even with broadband, it takes a little time before all pictures are displayed. If you're using a dial-up connection it takes longer.



If the host site is down, the red x remains.

We're in the midst of some nasty bushfire work at the moment, these are from yesterday's ops trying to black out as much as possible before tomorrow's Total Fire Ban: 40C+ and strong northerlies, not looking too flash




At least the water source is nice and close

This is my favorite but unfortunately it is not as good a resolution as the other ones. This was definately the highlight of my trip to Alaska.....stopping for a pic "near" Mt. Mc Kinley before heading towards it. I never forget the feeling when i was at 10,500 ft. and still having to look up for another 10,000 ft.....
I've got a bunch of slides that I want to scan in professionally but hav not been able to do so yet. There are many great pics I still have and someday I will share them with all of you. Glad you all like them.




and another cool one....

Screen capture from the movie "Firebirds"?






You could be right, I don't know. Someone sent me the picture for the collection. I thought it was a good shot so posted it.
