Bird's Eye View

Hi V ... I was lucky enough to take a ride in a helicopter once.  To my surprise it was extremely smooth;
no turbulence.  The pilot explained that it was because the aircraft hangs in the air under the rotors and
the rotors follow the air movement.  Not sure I quite understand it and it still puzzles me how they fly
Cheers J.


  1. I've not been on a helicopter Joe but if it's a smooth ride I'd have a go .... Nice under-belly shot.

  2. I'm going to have to take your word for that Joe and pass on the helicopter ride!!
