Nothing beats landing on a ship at sea in a Helicopter (except perhaps a jet landing on a carrier). Did that a couple of times, and while I am glad I got to do it, wouldn't want to do it again.

I took off once from a place called Loreto...on the Baja...the plane did it's normal taxi to the runway...and then actually got pushed back even further to make sure it was at the very end of the runway. They jacked the crap out of the engines before releasing the brakes and that plane used every last inch of runway before taking off. They actually cut the 8 foot perimeter fence to 4 feet at the end of the runway.

I'll just leave these here...




Yep - St. Maarten is my favorite place on earth. I go about twice per year - would go more if I could get off work. Being on the plane for the landing is sooo cool.

Iran Air flying through the mountains. Remember it to this day. Straight up, straight down, banking to the point we were sideways. I think the pilot was having fun.
