For some obscure reason this post has gone in TWICE...I laboriously deleted the first one with Edit but it just put itself back in...Can one of the controllers please remove one of the posts?

Gorgeous day for a flight, and a great chopper.

Can't wait for 256-bit so our sims get to look like that.

Can't wait for 248-bit so our sims get to look like that.

That would be 256-bit...I'll definitely need a bigger computer to run that OS! LOL!

Yes I did enjoy it very much, hurricane and I look forward to doing it again...It was such a pleasure to be able to concentrate on the camera work and not the flying...He is a very smooth pilot. A lot of my previous air to ground photos were taken by me from single seat fighters so it is in the lap of the gods as to how the photo will turn out as the flying gets all the attention.
