Amazing 360º picture of a rescue training in the Pyrinees on a Eurocopter EC-135

Click the link to see a great 360º picture of an EC-135 from the Spanish Guardia Civil de Montaña (Mountain rescue corps of one of the Police departments in Spain). All the pictures are great, but the helicopter one is on right column, fourth row. You can move through the picture also by clicking and moving the mouse. Spectacular.

As the web is in Spanish, here you have some notes:
"mostrar pantalla completa"= show fullscreen
"alejar"= far
"acercar"= near
"arriba"= up
"abajo" = down
"izquierda" = left
"derecha" = right

My question is: What kind of camera did they use to take those pictures? No supports or cables are seen in the pictures...

Regards

Let my introduce myself, I'm Captain Procrastination.

I'm painting green houses in those pictures. White paint in the early summer to keep them from getting too hot, and paint remover in the fall as the days get shorter.

The Ranges we usually sprayed were anywhere from half an acre to over 100 acres. Some were glass and some were poly. It's a pretty neat operation to see. At the end of the growing season, the tomato plants are 60-80 feet long.

It's been training season. I've been spending my time with the engines off.


Heading back to work just before new year. Another year of skiing for me.

A fence eh... Sounds small. I'll do it for free, you look after the over-spray.

Don't think my neighbors would tolerate that.

Sadly I have yet to figure out how to decode those on a regular basis. I guess you could say I'm still just an enthusiast. But what little I think I understand... Youch

Read 'Shit Weather'

Then add very heavy groups and lots and lots of landings on tricky spots with little fuel.

The good days are as good as it gets. The bad days are as bad as it gets. We're in a bit of a bad cycle right now.
