Wild Man.......... nice shots.

What was growing in that field you landed in..... rice ?

( though it looks too sloping for that ).

Toxic hair/makeup lady was one of the crew...... the ' star ' was a 4 yr old in a kiddy pool .

( it's an AC ad that starts in PEI and goes to Shanghai with flying windows crossing the screen )

Probably. The angle was mostly photo/scan induced.

OK guys check this out . This guy is a good friend of mine ARMY retired chopper pilot did 2 tours in Vietnam. Not only is he a rotor head but he is the original adventure biker. He actually hauled that cushman around with him it the chopper, fuck walking .



Other things he aquired a generator and a fridge... gotta keep the beer cold.

One afternoon he was flying down the coast of Vietnam and saw a barge off shore with a bunch of helicopters circling . So he goes out to take a look. The choppers are landing and getting loaded and taking off. So he eases into the pattern and sees that the barge has its call sign painted on the deck . He dials up the freq. listens in to see what is going on. So he says WTF he radios the barge gives em a fake call sign that sounds like the call sign the other choppers are using and they tell him to bring it in. He lands,the guys on deck start throwing crates into the chopper . They give him the thumbs up and off he goes back to base. When he gets back they open up the boxes full of frozen steaks. Needless to say he was the man of the hour.

That would be one of my choices as my ride if I won the big lotto. That or the EC 155.

What's the 430 like? Do I want one?

Hey, is that (Bell?) the same model they used for the show Airwolf? Man, I used to glue myself to the TV for that. Fat old Ernie Borgnine and Jean-Michel Vincent... I even built a model of it and flew it around before the show would come on.

You're very immature. Did you know that?


















Just kidding.

BTW, have you seen Jan Michael Vincent lately? Jeebus, he's a full-blown drunk, and his face was re-arranged in an alcohol-related car wreck. He's a fucking mess.

I had ETF in Voisey doing environmental work. I think I flew it a few times as well but I can't remember where.

Oh yes, Brad knows them alright. Heinz has been there since the old Trans-Maritime days, then Viking, and now Canadian.

And I consider barry Grant a dear friend. We started flying around the same time and flew together in Newfoundland in the 80s. Great guy and a very skilled pilot.

150KIAS cruise, xmsn mounted in viscous dampers, two big C40s in the back, and sexy. You may want one. It's so smooth we had to put a stick shaker on the collective to add artificial feel when reaching high torque. The 230 also rocks, and has that big two-blader sound

No, it's a growth version of it, which is why they look similar. Airwolf was a 222 and that's a 430.
