Machine guns mounted on a Zeppelin in 1916. I assume an anti-aircraft measure.

So, earlier today while I was working on today's 'This Day In History' post, I was interrupted by what sounded like a helicopter landing in my backyard.

It turned out to be a helicopter landing in my backyard!

Well, not quite my backyard, but, close enough:

It was the Air Evac Lifeteam out of Bowling Green, Kentucky.

I don't know what they were doing. They weren't picking up a patient. They were there 30-45 minutes, and then they just flew away.

It may have been a meet-and-greet-look-at-our-fancy-chopper-type thing for the new tenants at the little factory behind my house.

Made for an interesting Friday morning, if nothing else.

Maybe it was a warning to the factory people if you get hurt we'll fly you out of here, deny you ever worked here and your family will never see you again. :haha:

That might be a newly designated LZ? We have one maybe a half mile from here. It'd be nice if they could see them under ideal conditions.

That's a thought, but, it's less than a mile, as the chopper flies, from the hospital helipad.

that video of the guy balancing his pet jet like you balance a broom on your fingertip was cool. but you have to give this guy props (nyuknyuknyuk). his connection with his similarly scaled r/c aircraft is scary-good. I finally figured out the differential paint scheme on the opposite wing surfaces. it helps him distinguish which direction it "local up". Otherwise, there's gonna be some free haircuts.

The XB-36
Guess it didn't take long to figure out that wasn't a good idea. :rolleyes:

He caught the last cable, and it snapped. That'll fill your flight suit.

I can't imagine the hours spent polishing, and maintaining that shine, on this P-51C Mustang. :eek:

Gravdigr 07-11-2016 11:14 PM

Ooh, shiny!
