Sorry guys, only fly a Cessna me'self, but can't help snapping when I see these magical machines.....can't help thinking you'd get a bit further if the propeller thingy on top went a bit faster.

Mam Tor today.

Nice pics Chopper2004.

If I may offer a suggestion, slow your shutter speed down, preferably down to 125th of a second or slower. It gives the rotor blades some movement. Something just doesn't look right when the blades are frozen in flight.

Nice pics Gordy. Looks like a nice part of the world to fly in.

A little bit of an 'arty' shot last February at Essendon Airport during the fires.
BK117 VH-JGO (HEMS 4) on standby. No filters, natural light, just played with the White Balance a bit.

Hey BM, some of those old buildings out there don't inspire much confidence do they?
Not the most professional look you can get. And car parking is horrid.
