I actually went to the Transavia factory in 1969-70 for a tour.

Harry, that site is no good. It's just for the fixed wing sissys! In response to this let us recite the air force prayer:
God grant me the eyes of an eagle, the radar of a bat, and the balls of an Army helicopter pilot!

Having been a Radar Navigator (Bombardier) in B-52s. Fixed wing is OK by me. Helos are OK but I have never ridden in one. Would like to someday.

Stan, I'm sure you realize what I said was good natured inter service joshing. I have flown in Hueys, Blackhawks and OH-58D's which is the same as the Hughs 500 Defender used for traffic reports. My guess is the BFF's are much louder. I played with the snakes.

Thanks for posting that Harry. I've flown in some of the Douglas birds as an air crewman.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Live it to it's fullest.

Mine also was joshing except for the wanting to ride one some day. I would really like to see how that would be.
