How the helicopter flight went...

It was fantastic! Loved every minute of the (way too short) 20 minute joy flight.

We headed mostly over the coast and saw some lovely scenery. J took pics but I haven't seen them yet. If there are some good ones, I put them up later.

I wanna do it again!!

Helicopters are weird. They lean forward when they take off instead of backward like aeroplanes. They're great fun though and I'm jealous, I haven't been flying for ages.

Make sure it's not the last time you do it. It's too much fun. Try a joy flight in a Tiger Moth.

Ok. I didn't read your previous post. In that case, try an aerobatic joyflight in a Yak 52, or maybe even in a Mig 15, I think there's one based down your way. expensive though.

I was a bit surprised about the leaning forward bit. The hovering 'taxi-ing' thing was also something that had never occurred to me.

A joyflight in a Mig would be great - but you're right, very pricy.

i absolutely loved every helicopter ride i was on, even though i was usually throwing up. still totally worth it.

I once flew in a blimp. I'll have to dig up the album and scan some of the pictures in. It was such a neat experience, and your balloon and chopper pics have inspired me to take a closer look.

It's funny sean but I've never been air sick (so far) but put me in a boat and it's a different picture.

carmi, a blimp would be amazing! I'd love to give that a try.
