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.

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.

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.
