It's very important that pilots relax between these demanding flights, of course .....

Heliport,

You said " It's very important that pilots relax between these demanding flights"

'Relax' be damned. He fought hard for that salmon.
Here's the picture (movie) that was taken just before yours.

PS..We have Chris G in town, fresh from your location.....He's flying a LH drive BA, slightly smaller than the 61.
Bet he's having lots of fun though. He was in the schedule to do the Caracas - YVR ferry trip with me, but he's busy. If we get up that way, I'll drop in and drain the local Jet A tank dry with the Shortsky. I'll likely cross the rocks through Spokane though.

Few more images from my travels, and for those that asked to see a couple from my military shoots, have included those as well.

Kamov KA-32 working on the Hoping Dam project in Taiwan.



Selection of images shot on the 2003 fires in and near Canberra. The area where the Kmax is working lost nearly 600 houses in the one day.









Fire Lighting this time. Not putting it out.



AZ Army National Guard Apache



F-14 Shoot at NAS Pax River.



Honolulu PD MD520N over the lagoons.



Last but not least F-15 Formation when we visited downtown Sydney.

Last Bunch before I head off to Heli Tech in the UK. If any of you are going then stop by Booth 1414 and say hi.


















And finally for all those Robbie lovers out there.



One thing I have forgotten to do since I started posting these images is say a very sincere thankyou to Carlos (Blenderpilot). Really appreciate the hosting of the images and its thanks to him that the images can be seen and enjoyed (hopefully).

In contrast to the Catenary Landing Pad, a LongRanger landing on the coast James Bay.


A few S76 shots on a heli-pad approach and departure.

We're heading toward the end of the ski season, and one of the mountains gathered the troops and machinery for the staff photo. My nerves twitched a bit when the 5 Kassi's parked a tad close to the BK

Bell 47

Hi

Anyone out there with photos of the Bell 47

I am writing a book on the aircraft and would like to "pad" it out with some good in-flight pictures

I would also ask for permission to use any photographs in the book

Thanks in advance

I recently took some pictures of B47 with a friend on this forum. Some are in flight, in hover, and on ground. Check your PM's.

Had an early morning flight today that took me close to one of mexicoís largest active volcanos, Popocatepetl, its about 25 NM from my base, it is a very active volcano that often emits ash and water vapor above 30,000 FT., it's spectacular to see this happen.

This volcano is a little over 18,000 FT, and as you can see by looking at the altimeter I was already at 12,600 FT and it still looked like I had way to go to the top. This was a 206L IV, great altitude machine with the optional T/R Kit.

You canít go anywhere from Mexico City without going up to at least 10,500 to clear the monuntains.

212man.....Nice IAS

Not being a whizz on the new 155 technology....most mediums experience a drop off in VNE as the DH gets higher...in the B412 it can drop off anywhere from around 7 - 20 knts depending on the OAT at 6000 ft.

With your slick machine at over 6000 with that impressisve IAS, does Eurocopter account for a decrease in VNE as Bell does??

If it does....how close are you to VNE???

[Basic VNE = 175??]

OMR,
the 155 TAS actually increases with altitude up until around 6-7000 ft and thens tails off again. This still gives a TAS at 9-10000 equal to that at sea level!

Fuel burn stays pretty static until 6000 ft then drops off significantly: 330 kg/hr at sea level, 270 kg/hr at 10000 ft, both with about 157 kts TAS.

Vne is 175 kts up to 2000 ft, then reduces to 172 at 4000 ft and thereafter at 3 kts per 1000 ft. The IAS scal has a red line that automatically moves to reflect this.

No gear limiting speed either!

Hi Flying Lawyer....
Well I also was just in West Virginia last weekend. Rode the Blue Ridge Parkway on the bike and did a checkout for a rafting company on the Gauley and New Rivers near Fayetteville.
Couldn't help but think about the "flying under bridges" thread while looking at the New River Bridge...not that it would be much of a challenge.
