I understand everyone not liking helicopters as being a rotary guy I don't like fixed wing.

Have to admit however that an airplane like this is cool.

I've been up in helicopters 10x's, but don't know what it's like to land in a helicopter. Jumped out of every one.

I actually got to straddle a missile pod on a Cobra Strike helicopter and sky dive off it once. I can't believe how many pilots took chances with their licenses back in the late 70's early eighties when I was a sky diving instructor. The Cobra jump wouldn't have lost the pilot his license, he was military, but could have seriously gotten him an ass chewing at his commanders found out. I jumped out of the Goodyear Blimp illegally. Camaraderie goes a long way. Every odd ball plane that showed up at our drop zone I immediately was on them asking if I could jump out of it. My list of strange things to jump out of or off us is extensive.

Awsome... My jumping off planes & objects career is just about to begin. soon as the bus is done. my first helicopter ride was with the Riverside county sherriff department. i found human remains at the lake next to my house in the hills while geocahcing. it was a young autistic girl who been missing for a few years. poor girl.
