Plato was right, but not quite right.

Hélicoptère sur la ligne. Hobart, February 2011.

I really love this one. The power line cutting across was unintentional, as I had to move quickly to get the shot because the helicopter was heading nor’ east. I do like how it turned out.

I wish that I had a helicopter. I’m sure that I could arrange a parking spot on the roof, it’s not like it’s being used for anything else.

I too love your shot.
Kris, have you ever been in a helicopter? They are fascinating.

While in Queensland friends made a surprise for our son, a flight with a helicopter. But my boy don't wanted to go alone. Only with me. So I got a free ride. Along the coast, maybe 10 minutes.
WOW Amazing!
And this was my first flight!

I’ve not had the pleasure. I did however find myself sitting directly underneath one as it was endeavouring to land. They are terribly loud!

Ear muffs my son. They are issued as you board. As one who flew to and from work on a regular basis using helicopters, I can only commend their use. They are far safer than aeroplanes in my opinion. Although I'm not all that keen when they leave the doors off. Somehow I don't really have that much faith in the seat belts. Still that was only the choppers we used at Port Kembla.

really good shot :)

Roddy, the seat belts would work okay. It's the ejector seats that I'd be worried about...

Babzy, cheers!
