A few random shots.

Sikorsky Kaman KMax placing rooftop units.
Given its livery, it's a Java/Matt local from Heliqwest.
The only Sikorskys I've seen used for aerial lift have been some version of the S58 (CH34/S58T/Wessex), S64, or S70. I'm sure they use others, but those are the ones I've seen/used.
Hey Pat, you are almost certainly correct. I tried to google the chopper with no luck. I vaguely remember someone saying Sikorsky but that was probably random noise. They did however say this was one of the few remaining in use.

Jimbo - oops, was I supposed to take two shots? :mrgreen:

Whoever it is, he's sure put some wear on that Les Paul Junior! A less abused one looks like this:

The difference is not having helicopter blades whirling. Adding that to the equation takes things to a whole new level. You mix science and art seamlessly...

Thanks Jimbo but don't give me too much credit here. On a shot like that luck is the biggest component. That said I always remember David Hume Kennerly's quote. "F/8 and be there". Knowing where to stand, where the sun will be, etc. - what are the variables that can bend the odds to your favor. I'm damn confident you do exactly the same, your shots show it through consistent quality and an intimate style that doesn't just "happen". These previsualization steps allow us to then use our camera skills to the best advantage. And every now and then it all comes together - hell I even got a shot in focus once back in '67. :mrgreen:

Yes, it’s bringing your knowledge in order to increase your odds. Part of that is remembering what does not work and there’s lots of that.

I still never turn down luck though... :)
