I surprised my partner for her 30th. It's was so freaking amazing. We zoomed around the sky in a bubble over Mt Cootha and the city we then went Rally-coptering over the airfield low and fast. We were grinning from ear to ear. Thanks Andy

Hi Russel, Thank you for your feedback. The difference between a photo taken through a large open door way compared to through perspex is dramatic isnt it. You should consider taking up aerial photography. I'm glad you really enjoyed the flight

Glad you liked the Bell47. Everybody does! So much more fun than a modern aircraft. Its like an open top top vintage car compared to a tiny Hyundai
