Mike "Rotor" Nowak recently posted a bunch of quite nice (and quite innovative) shots. I love the "dragonfly" characteristics of the 530:

(And, in a fairly bizarre coincidence, as I was typing in the above, I heard an unfamiliar helicopter sound and ran to the window to see one of the Sikorsky S-92 prototypes pass by, headed towards the DC area. Rotary karma?)

In keeping with my signature line -- a nice reject from the other day. I'm happy with this one.



Really good looking stuff here guys. Keep it coming for us rotorheads.

Same spot, same event, same photographer, same operator, same grass-flinging effect, just two years apart.

I've always had a thing for Mi-24s, in this case a Slovak which found a chance to masquerade as Soviet:

Is it the livery that makes the illusion of the helicopter sort of flipping on its left and rear side?

Another interesting pair of helicopter photos made possible by a.net. These are of the same helicopter, Whirlwind HAR10 XP360, but with a time difference of nearly 30 years.
