Planning on heli-spotting at LAX on October 30th or 31st. If anyone's interested in coming along (and sharing the cost!), send me an email. Will be an R44 Heli.

Howard,

If you ever decide on going up again at lax on a weekend, contact me and I would be delighted to come with you and split the cost. A good time for me would be in may-June.

Somehow I completely missed this thread, though I wouldn't have been able to go anyway. Hope you had a good time!

Same here. Never done it before.

How much does it typically cost?
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
