    Awesome set as usual Adam, but aren't you having Orbx withdrawls?

    I did a summer as a mobile heli mechanic on wildfires about 20 yrs ago, we spent some time in Redding, CA and I remember they had a bunch of O2s with infrared equipment painted up in the orange & white CDF scheme. It was very similar to the livery in your screenshots if you replaced the green with white as I recall. Hadn't thought about those in years, thanks for the reminder .

    Excellent shots and flight idea, keep 'em comin' Adam!

    Outstanding once again Adam, such a beautiful bird!
    You better stay in the air my friend, I heard Dave organised one of his famous BBQ's nearby

    Sorry for being missed in action last week, I had to organise a "few" things: "open monuments day" in Amsterdam for the National Historical Building Society, and in the same weekend Bianca and I organised a walk (in the Amsterdam Forest) for the Dutch "Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever Society" Over 1.500 visitors came to visit our old railway station and the Museum Tramline, and over 30 dogs and 50 owners joined the walk in the forest. Dogs and owners were transported to the forest with historical streetcars. Last Monday a terrible flu attacked me and I still make funny noises.

    Here's a link to a YouTube vid showing the walk in the Amsterdam Forest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqP5E...layer_embedded including my noble performances

    Here's a pic of some Duck-Tollers during our walk, including our 2 little ladies:

    Jan i'm really lost for words after watching the video,i would love to do something like that,it's looks so relaxing.Reminds me of when i was a kid,my grandfather worked for the railroad and after he retired he used to take me on the train,then called the Pennsylvania Railroad to Altoona,Pa. around the Horseshoe Curve on the old Then,coal fired steam engines,lot of fun.Well it looks like everyone had a great time,and hats off to you and Bianca for organizing such an event.Enjoyed the doggie shot and the video my friend,thanks for sharing.

    Thank you much Jan.
