Flyting your meaning what exactly? ground was solid, into wind at the time of landing the afternoon before with horrendous weather all around, but Heli VMC therer. But weather closed in before patient was ready for flight, hence stayed the night. The ground was uneven every where, but levelish there

Great stuff Vertical Freedom. Immensely enjoyable views from the 'roof of the world'.

JB-319, great images. It just so happens that one of the shots I appreciate most of the EC145 comes from the Gendarmes .. below:


EC145 'JBH' of the Gendarmerie landing at Chamonix, DZ des Bois, on 18th December 2005

I was sent this image shortly after it was taken in 2005 then lost it and more recently recovered it again courtesy of a certain well-know photo site. It is now part of my collection entitled 'Snow Copters'.

Great stuff and keep up the good work!
