I found this slow motion video of a helicopter blade. You weren't kidding!

Ah yes, I remember that one well.

There are several more good ones but it might take some searching...

I absolutely adore the sound of the Huey. Speaking as a Vietnam vet, nearly every time I heard that sound, the chopper, and the brave men flying it, were coming either to protect my sorry butt, or to lift it out of the field and take it to a safer place.

In simpler, more direct, terms, the sound of a Huey usually meant good news. Plus, flying in them, with both doors wide open, was a hoot.

To this day, more than 40 years later, when I hear a Huey, I smile.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Saw/heard a Lancaster bomber out of Hamilton airport years ago during the Toronto airshow. That thing was LOUD!

Heh. Well, that's what I told the docent my guess was, but he was pretty definite about the supersonic thing. Ah well. It was a fantastic tour anyway.

It certainly is a unique sound. I've been in one twice heli skiing. Those things are powerful! It's quite a thrill the first time you lift off in one.

Just watching the news tonight and a pilot buddy of mine just flew a PT-27 Stearman into Brandon, MB for the air museum from Tyendinaga Mohawk Airfield (CPU6), ON. Very cool.

My nephews is a pilot for US Air. But that's not the only flying he does.

He also flies a 1941 Waco UPF-7 and a 1943 Stinson V-77 "Reliant" owned by his father-in-law

My father had his private pilot's license and we flew alot when i was growing up. He was big into the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and he built his own KR2 plane (took 14 years in the various garages and basements over time).

--just a stock internet photo, don't have any of his old photos scanned---

I remember going to Wisconsin for the big annual EAA show.
Yes i've seen and remember those Harvards.
We flew down in the family Piper Cherokee (stock photo).



But over the years he had many friends in Ontario that belonged to EAA and had their own planes.
One fellow owned an aerobatic Pitts Special. Now that was a fun ride!!
