Helicopter Ride

Zack, our 16 year old GrandSon, got a Helicopter Ride on Sunday. I packed some sandwiches, and we all sat and watched the SkyDivers and AirPlanes.  He wasn’t scared at all – had a great time! The weather was looking a little threatening, so Grandma was a little nervous.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 We can see the airport from our house and when he comes to visit he watches the skydivers, planes, helicopter, hot air balloons. So we thought, what a great experience for him to get to ride in one. The pilot let him try to hover and let him steer it a little. They do that at the end of the ride off from the airport by Highway 9. I have always wondered why they were just hovering there and going up and down. Now I know…

The sky divers were yelling and screaming coming down right above us. Not in a fearful way, but probably excited and happy their shoot opened.
