Every three years the Laurel School system puts on what they call Aviation and Technology Week. (basically an airshow with some companies peddleling stuff like windmills and oil drilling equipment) The Helicopter section was actually at the high school so we landed next to the school gym. Most of the pictures speak for themselves...
Never travel without a fire team... they are always popular with the kids!!!
What Montana airshow wouldn't entertain it's aircrew with a shooting and riding demonstration. After the day was closed we went out to some stables and some dudes shot balloons off sticks with corncob bullets from 44 mag revolvers. (I could never have made that up) It did make me think I need to try shooting while riding a motorcycle! Anyways, after the demo, someone figured out that I have never riden a horse. One of the shooters wouldn't let that stand so he stuck me between his hat and his horse and made me do it. (I am not a fan of horses for several reasons... but I made an exception.)
I am recieving the horse version of the "Houses get bigger, Houses get smaller" briefing.
This is the Marines blowing a baseball field into the next county... and the couties are about the size of Connecticut up here. It looked cool to me!
Look close, it's the stealth bomber.
