Pics of interesting places you have landed at

Postby FerrariFlyer » Wed Mar 3 2010, 08:54

We have all landed in some pretty interesting or amazing places in our time. It is where a helicopter can go that makes the helicopter unique.

Here are a few of the places I have been able to set down at and take a few pics, both here and abroad. Hopefully others will share a few pics too.

Geez,

FF and Ned have really set a high benchmark.

That's some tight parking by the HeliExpress Squirrel in Canada (Heli-Ops pic). I didn't know you could "touch park" a helicopter???

GREAT THREAD!

I'm loving all these picture threads. Can't wait till I have landed somewhere more exciting than an airfield...

All have beautiful landscapes. BTW all were real or edited?? Because some of them were really unbelievable. I mean there is no halipad and landing at stone of river or small wooden pool is really unbelievable.

Hi there aliahlewis,
I think you will find that all these are genuine, some pretty amazing shots showing the diversity of the helicopter that's for sure, Heliops are always very special, hey Ned don't want to post a copy of that great shot with the volcano that will be on the cover of your next mag for us photo junkies to drool over? That would be one of the best photos I have ever seen. :D
cheers
Pegs :cool_slp:
A good idea needs landing gear as well as wings to get off the ground.
