Helicopter Aerobatics

Flyin' Brian used to fly the CALSTAR (CALifornia Shock Trauma Air Rescue) Flight-for-Life helicopter in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
It was a Bolkow BO-105. He said it was a sturdy, powerful helicopter and fun to fly.
Here he is landing on the little cart that they use to move the helicopter inside the hanger, to keep it warm for easy starting.

We visited the base in Tahoe and were treated to a ride over the lake.

Here's a wild clip of a BO-105, sponsored by Red Bull, doing stunts at an airshow.

I've been offered a free firearms training course at Front Sight in exchange for posting these links.
Since I've already taken one of their excellent courses, I jumped at the chance to get a free one.
