RE: Can Anyone Identify This Helicopter For Me?

According to the FAA website, the reg number is owned by an LLC owned by Dick DeVos (R-Scumbag), a wannabe politician from Michigan. He's the bald-headed guy in the picture, so that checks out. Thanks for the info about the model, though.

Can Anyone Identify This Helicopter For Me?

Can anyone identify the model of this helicopter for me? The person who originally posted the photo says it's a Eurocopter <acronym title="Anglo Cargo (United Kingdom)">EC</acronym>-130, but I just want to make sure. Thanks in advance! <img src="http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/8885/choppernr3.jpg...

RE: 50 Pound Restriction On Luggages? Outrageous!

If you can afford to go on a trip that requires 100 lbs of clothing (several weeks's worth?), you can fork over a few extra bucks for the extra gas to carry your stuff. Either that or leave it at home.
