Quick Shot from a Heli Outing

Exploring the desert by helicopter.

Just got back from a helicopter outing with some friends. They fly Hughes 500 ships, which can get into some pretty tight places.

I took quite a few photos as we explored two abandoned mine sites. Thought I’d share this photo today; maybe I’ll write up more about the outing tomorrow. Too tired now.

Can you see both helicopters in this shot?

  1. I rode along in one of the Hughes. The LZs they chose were so tight, I don’t think I would have been able to fit the R44 in any of them. The blades and tailcone are too long. The Hughes 500 is a much more compact ship.

  2. Maria,

    Now that is my kind of Helicopter tour! Two MD 500’s to go play in the desert, Nice! Looking forward to the report.

What do you think?
