Skywatch Friday-Leaving the Fly-In




The Air 1 medical helicopter takes off into the clear blue sky. I hope the Fly-in or something similar is made into an annual event. The Heritage Jubilee in the spring and the Museum/Airport open house in the fall. Great bookends to summer.

It always amazes me that a helicopter (or a regular airplane, for that matter) can actually fly! Nice shot!

I've always wanted to go on a helicopter ride. The view from up there must be real nice! :)
Happy Skywatch!

This is a different take on SkyWatch, and I like it. Well done, Jim.

Great series, Jim, on the Fly-In! I think lately, between your aircraft and my watercraft, we have the air and sea covered pretty well. :)

voila une façon original de présenter le ciel du vendredi. J'ai essaye une fois l'hélicoptère, j'ai eut la peur de ma vie, je ne recommencerais pas ;o)

voila a way to present the original sky Friday. I tried once the helicopter, I had the fear of my life, I do it again not ;o)

You know how at events they usually have planes carrying a banner? Well at Marinsville they had a helicopter carrying a Big Red banner around the track, weird huh...seems like that would be hard and dangerous.

I can see you had fun at the fly-in.

Hi Jim...I have also posted a helicopter photo today. Great minds think alike I suppose! Now today is my 1st time to post an official skywatch photo. I've posted sky shots before and even on Friday, but never officially linked to Skyley. I'm looking forward to participating!

Hi Jim...I didn't get the earlier comment but your 2nd one did come through. I agree that great minds think alike! In fact, I just left that very same comment on your blog! LOL!
