Not Puking With Officer Don

August 17, 2021

I love the adventure of doing aerial photos from a helicopter, especially when it's done right with the door off. But usually, for me, that adventure comes at a price. Looking down through a camera lens while the pilot is turning and banking usually sends my head one way and my stomach the other way. Pilots have had to make a quick trip to the ground more than once for me to get off and puke! The last time was in a cow pasture somewhere near Boonesboro. And to make matters worse, as I run out of the chopper with my head down, I get to breath in a nice ration of fuel fumes from the engine, which makes it even worse. 

I got to go up recently and do some shots of downtown Lexington with Officer Don. He was a super nice guy. It was the only time that I've never gotten sick, which means he was either a really good pilot or I'm getting better at it. Or both.
