We (my work) rent our hall and museum space to proms and weddings and such. On April 17th, one of the prom guys is renting a helicopter to show up in, instead of a limo. I will be helping out with the landing setup and some logistics.

I know it's either a Long Ranger or a Jet Ranger. I'll take some video or some pictures at least!

I was there on Tuesday. It was cool to see this one up close... it's like a giant flying tractor.

It's been a long cold winter, but last week it finally warmed up enough to get our Class D checkrides done. My first time with meat on the line. I have to say it was a bit anti-climatic. Longlining is much more fun and challenging, but this sure looks cool as hell!

Pilot didn't have enough altitude before he started his maneuver. It's a Eurocopter NH90 and the bystanders were only injured from what info I've come across.

anohter incident of final drive failure. It failed after impacting the ground at speed.

actually, rotation was begun too low, according to the photographer

bystanders weren't touched (apparently that was shot with a telephoto). pilot died, others on board survived.
