Planes and Helicopters

A few days ago my lovely wife Becka blogged about one of our new favorite places to picnic in Boise. It's at the end of the runway at the Boise airport. You can read Becka's post here. In Becka's blog her main focus was the fighter jets flying around. I'm sort of continuing Becka's post by adding a few more pictures. I know, I know, here I am plugging away my own pictures, forcing them into your face. Not really, but I do love airplanes and helicopters so I thought I would share.

This Firehawk helicopter flew so close over head I almost got a kink in my neck trying to take the picture.

Being a former Horizon employee, I enjoy taking pictures of these crappy Q400 planes. I'm not saying flying on a Q400 is unsafe or anything but it's probably a good idea to make sure you have life insurance before you board the plane. Also, if you weigh over 125 pounds be prepared to travel like a sardine. On second thought, be prepared anyway.

These pictures look really good enlarged. When the planes approach from the west of the runway you can get really close making it easy to get good pictures.
