Have only flown in a helicopter twice in my life, both times over Manhattan. Pics from the second time, in November 2000....

And yes, I've done it. And no, I don't want to do it again.

A long time ago a VERY good longline pilot said to me: "I don't think you realize what a fragile bubble we dance on" At the time, he was right. I'm afraid I've become all too aware over the years.


You're getting old - and that's a good thing.

From Afghanistan

I'm on a 1 year get away to Afghanistan, it's nice this time of year...the Mi-17 flies well in the cool air. The Afghan pilots and flight engineers are...well, occasionally sketchy but decent guys...most of the time.

Occasionally we fly with Italian AB129 Mangusta's for armed escort in higher threat areas. A lot of those missions are flown with Mi-17's, Italian Chinook's and AB 412's all in the same formations.







These are Italian Air Force AB 212's. They few with us for mutual support, we only had one Mi-17 working that day. This was a good time.
