    Cool pics!

    I've never seen manuevers like this either.

    I've been rattled by a pair of F-16s at tree top level, directly overhead, and I thought that was cool.
    (You don't see or hear them until they are right on top of you at that altitude/speed. :eek: )

    We should see a few helis in our skies before too long, the local paper had this writeup the other day....


    Associated Press
    Published: May 27, 2008
    ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — Pilots will be flying the Air Force’s most powerful and technologically advanced transport helicopters across the mountains of western Virginia and southern West Virginia.
    It’s all part of a training exercise involving four MH-53 Pave Low helicopters that begins Wednesday and runs through June 5.
    The heavy-lift helicopter is the largest in the Air Force’s inventory.
    The Air Force says pilots will gain experience flying low across a region that has terrain similar to mountainous regions abroad.

    Thats odd, we seen two very similar heli's flying low over my area around 6pm last night. They were real loud, and moving! We dont get much action like that around here, so we definatley took note.
