love your work, Gordy

These are (shamelessly) stolen from Queensland Government Rescue 500 FB page, showing today's winch rescue of a mountain bike rider from Upper Brookfield.

Grant - One of my first questions but because they do a lot of landing on sand in Kuwait the bear paws actually work really well for them. So a whole new use for them

Fire season in full swing here in the US:

From last year---who says we can't do triples:



Oh the places you go: Ridge Fire in Idaho last year:







This was in Minnesota back in April:



Dipping out of frozen lakes with holes in them makes my bucket a tad cold---yes, that is ice on the bucket:



Just down the road from my base in Swan Valley Idaho, (actually took this one last year):



Dropping supplies for a hand crew on the Canadian border on the Newby Lake Fire in Washington State:



I am the blue dot above H3....nose is in Canada, tail in the US:



Who says there is no line at the border...... H3 is at the top of the mountain on the line:



The fire Canada gave us:

These photos were taken some years ago by WO Rick Brewell on 12th May 1995 at RAF Boulmer. Pilot was Flt Lt Ed Straw, practising for the 1995 display routine; some interesting and spectacular shots

Summer weather is so nice and even photogenic too.



The New New James Bond?



Flying in The Rockies - even in summer a coat is required (but shorts are ok).
