pfffff, i live in skyline/ encanto representing, dawg, somthings wrong if i dont hear ghetto byrd doing hot lapps over da hood , All frikken weekend....
Old school when they pulled the doors off. Can’t do that anymore. I think it was 99 or 2000 when I got to ride in that Helo. A few friends with connections at Gillespie Field and I was in the back seat for a quick fly over the East County.We trained with ASTREA a lot when I was in the K-9 unit. This photo was in 2002. At 6'4", it wasn't a comfortable fit for me in the back seat with my dog. The observer was a friend of mine who let me ride shotgun during one of our training sessions and videotape the flight.
yes, is a ' spork' more appropriate??, just in case??Pifffttt that's nothing our chopper pilot used to carry a plastic fork in his shirt pocket all the time I finally mustered up the nads to ask him 'why the fork' he proceeded in a small demonstration by flying higher & faster then immediately flipping the chopper around backwards while still going in the same direction as before only flying backwards losing speed and altitude at an alarming rate then flipping the chopper back around at full throttle regaining the lost speed & altitude before we hit the dirt while at the same time telling me.....and I quote
"ya never know when your going to have a hot lunch"
That my friends concludes today's chopper lesson are thier any questions?
