    I always made sure I got a window seat whenever we got a ride in the Iroquois - they fly with the door open! Awesome fun! Probably won't get a chance to fly in the new ones - I don't think we've even got the budget to by their promotional stickers

      Brilliant shots here Paul. I love the motion blur you have achieved in these, something I have to work on. TFS them with us.

            I really mis the Huey. I have over 3000hrs flying bell's; AH-1 (Cobra)/UH-1(Huey)/OH-58(Kiowa). The Huey was the best overall...that is one durable aircraft. (but the AH-1 was a bit more fun)

              Thanks Lisa, I've only been in one once and it was great, not a Huey nut a Puma and they also had the door open! When they bank sharply you feel like you are going to fall out!!

              Thanks Pauline, I find it quite difficult as the shutter speed is very slow!!

              Now I envy you,one learns something new about people every day, and yes I'll miss it too - it's unique sound....lets hope they keep one flying for airshows and stuff.

                There's a group here that has a Huey. They have it painted up in Vietnam colors.

                    That's just not right....I'd love to see some shots of it.

                    Thanks klit90, I'd love to go for a flight in it and experience some of the sensations that that sort of flying creats.
