Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Wonderful peice of machinery and an excellent capture. I might have opted for just a bit slower shutter speed to capture a bit of motion in the blades.

@Jason Politte: You are right , thank you . I'll try it next time !

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

So much 'stuff' has been added to modern helicopters that it surprises me they can still fly ! I remember when they were a mere framework.

23 May 2011 9:02am

@Ronnie 2¢: Hello Ronnie ! Not only fly ,they are handy in a astonishing way. I also saw former helicopters in the Show of Le Bourget in 1965! (I just have 2-3 photos in black and white of planes wich I took when I was a child!). Thank you .
