    W rescue chopper out bush

    A bit different for out here.

    The Westpac rescue chopper did a promo bush run today. There is never much praise for banks but I think Westpac do a great job in funding this service.

    I always like the sound of choppers; but it would be a sound from heaven if you were in the middle of the ocean with no boat, or lost and/or hurt in the bush.

    #1: I love doing that Yeah; hanging out of chopper with a camera; even if I do get air sickness

    #2 is a vertical pano of two images

    Thanks Cat and Carman; to get these photos it pays to approach the pilot with your ideas>>in the third photo he was flying sideways towards me because I asked him to.

    I was really hoping he would have stayed a little lower; but a photo is not worth loosing a job over.
