>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.

>O Sifuni Mungu

>Happy Easter. Seems like I ought to post something.

This is one of my favorite Christian songs from the 70’s. We actually got to see First Call live in Las Vegas.
About a year ago, my friend told me about a person he met at work who was from Africa. Somehow the song came up (my friend knew most of the words, as do I) This casual connection resulted in the guy and his family coming to our church.
