The ranting and raving of a geek who likes guns and planes and all kinds of other stuff.

Now that the Marines and Army are gone, there is room for all kinds of neat stuff out there on the ramp. We had a BlackHawk and Longbow Apache here earlier and now there is an Agusta SPA, a Bell 206 and a EuroCopter EC135 medivac out on the ramp. The EC was just taking off. Impressive control the pilot showed. I have a video but Blogger is balking. The pilot definitely has a hover button. Despite the 8-15MPH gusty winds we are currently experiencing, they held spot on while waiting their turn to take off. Rock steady then pushed into the wind and away they went.
