Below VFR

Reassignments, maintenance and weather. These are few of my least favorite things,,,,, when it comes to spending time aboard my magic flying machine, Chopper 9. In fact I have not logged a single flight hour since Aug. of this year. One might call it a drought or bad luck. I call it refocusing.

The weeks leading up to this "drought" brought questions to whether I really wanted to continue with being a part of this program. Had I had enough of flying? Was I taking this gig for granted? Had it stopped being fun?

Then on my second to last day of that flight filled week in August brought a rather unusual shoot to my lap. It wasn't news gathering but it was fun and it made me realize just how lucky and blessed I am to hold a position on the Chopper 9 Crew.

During these recents weeks of below VFR (Visual Flight Rules) I managed to play with some footage of that "fun" flight. I hope you enjoy.
