    Fun fact: the airfield at Huachuca was built to handle fully loaded B52s, and is was a designated landing strip for the Space Shuttle.

    Helicopters don't really fly, they just beat the air into submission.
    A Blackhawk does it better than a Huey, which is why, with a Blackhawk, you can hear the air scream...

    Helicopters are fascinating. I wish I had a Little Bird and knew how to fly it around here...it would be amazing.

    I used to fly a 530F, which is the civilian equivalent of a Little Bird.

    Probably had 20mm miniguns on it because the 7.62mm versions weren’t effective on bears...

    Super cool. One of my life's regrets is that I didn't get the opportunity to learn to fly, esp. helicopters. Maybe I'll get a drone when they have a virtual reality helmet you can use to fly it

    One of the best gunshops I've ever been to is Horizon Shooters in Flagstaff. Years ago, when I lived in Tuscyan (not to be confused with Tucson) Horizon Shooters was a regular stop when we went to town to pick up groceries for the month. The owner was well connected in the local machinegun scene. I got to look at many different types of machineguns that passed through his shop. One that I wish I got photos of was a pristine M14 that used to be part of the Harrington-Richardson museum.
    Everything I needed to know how to adapt, overcome and improvise, I learned from Wile E. Coyote
