Did you give a wave to the Space Station as it went past when you took that shot? #5006. Amazing......

VF has one of those fancy electrical TCAS thingies in his whirly-copter: rumoured the traffic collision avoidance advisory had him descending to avoid whacking his whirly-copter into the space station. As we all know, his tail rotor seems to be a magnet for all sorts of unfortunate things.

Congratulations VF as OP of a thread now with 5000+ posts. We all owe you a cold tall green bottle with fizzy stuff. Just remember they not twist tops, you need the TPUOT (thirsty pilot universal opening tool) to open those.

Beloved said she liked the rocks on view in #5000 & why don't I buy her more.
Please refrain from posts that upset.
