FIFI!

I was outside at Eurocopter back in may of last year working on some crates and she flew right over my head out of nowhere at about 500 AGL.

It was awesome.

I used to have a shop at the South end of the runway at Addison airport many years ago. FiFi was there for some work one time, it was an awesome sound when that big sumbitch took off.

Thanks for the pics, JMead!! B17 is my favorite plane of all time. The 29 has it's place, though, too.
