Flying under the Golden Gate Bridge

Just before (probably would have been better if the camera had focussed on the bridge, not the compass :-( ). Before anyone reminds that photography while flying the R44 is explicitly forbidden, I should mention that at this point I wasn't handling the controls.

Here's a shot I did of a student while heading out to do some off-airport landings.

En route from Missoula to Hillsboro in a 206B3.

Earl...

206 Floating in Gaitor Country
That picture was taken on the Everglades National Park down in Southern Florida. It is somewhat scary dipping buckets down that way looking at all the gators thru the chin bubble.....

ps: Gordy - you never did get back to me on the 'HeliMex' thread to confirm if you were the Henry Winkler look alike holding the machine gun!
Ah...just saw that----nope not me, that is Rob, one of my other pilots. I prefer to work with a helitack crew rather than get suck doing nothing but buckets all day.

Here are some of the last couple of months taken by Bob Barnes who is the Aviation Officer for S.E. Idaho inter-agency fire.











This is what happens when someone leaves the ignitors on for a cleanout barrel:


And here is me and my crew, real people, real fires, non-pro pictures:

Gordy,

Thats certainly a brilliant picture of the wild cone effect created by power and movement on the Air Crane, one of the best I've seen to show the blade movement on any heli.

I cannot take credit for the pics....I was flying the L4. The pics were taken by Robert Barnes...(permission granted to post), here is another one from this season, that shows the downwash created in the dip:



I was just working with HT-742 over the last few days, it is amazing how much vertical climb the cranes gain during the drop.

Just had this one e-mailed to me by the lookout fire fighter on a ridgeline when I did this burnout two days ago... This is the Giraffe Creek fire on the S.E. Idaho/Wyoming border, about two hours after the pic above with the crane and L4 in it.

Is that the super frelon that crashed while fire-fighting in the Cape Town area a few years back?

Lots of heavy iron on our little airport these days, due to a massive military exercise

SVA Servicio de Vigilancia Aduanera (Spanish Border Patrol)

Hi all

Here you have some photos of the Spanish customs police service.
The Border Patrol Service (SVA) is a Spain´s government agency whose helicopters are operated by civil pilots of the company Inaer.

We fly Bo´s Bk´s and Dauphines N3

The old Bo


This is the old paint scheme of SVA


95% of Flight time is VFRN/IFRN


Fixed-wing division was operated by the military and now is also going to be operated by Inaer. They fly the Spanish manufactured Casa C-212 Aviocar


This is one of the customs agents companions who flies with us in LEVX


Galicia ( at northwest Spain ) it is called the entry gatedoor of cocaine in Europe, here a picture of the shore...


What we have down there?


Later in the morning...


Those little bastards were carrying more than 1.5 tons of cocaine


This was a big one...seven engines (250cc each one) at stern. They abandoned it due to a colission against rocks, after tried to burn it to clean evidences. The police arrived and they couldn´t burn it. There were 19,000 litres of gas inside it. Note how close the buildings are.


This was taken in South Spain (alboran sea, 45 miles southeast from LEAM) where Moroccan Gangs transport Hash from north Africa to our shores
Say cheese!!!


Our colleages from the maritime division


This is me with my buddy landing on a customs ship in Santander harbor...not too much space


Greetings

The smugglers here dont use fireweapons (till now).
Our agents only fire at their engines but it is not a common practice.
The pursuit pictures were taken from a height of 15ft
Finally I have to apologize for my english, need to improve it.

Some filming added in the videos thread

Cheers
