rotorheadrob Posted August 16, 2008 Report Share Posted August 16, 2008 Over the past week, I, as I am sure all of you, have felt a deep sorrow. There has been so much bad news. It makes me wonder some times why we do what we do. I realize that could be me, and lets face it, it's only a matter of statistics. If you fly long enough, something bad will happen. We accept the risk, both pilot and engineer, but truly why do we do it, because nothing beats building a drill on a mountain top! Doing 2 min turns with a bucket in a 2 million dollar machine. Thats as cool as it gets. I have always said, "it takes 2 of us to make money with a heli, cheers to or maintenance crews. I believe we are blessed with the most professional wrenches in aviation. I am curious to hear from some of you , why and how you accept the risks we live with every day? I'm having a few beers tonight, so cheers to my fallen comrades, and the many who been affected by all this bad news, RIP!!! To all of you, my hopes and prayers to be safe and careful. DW, thank you ! Cheers, Rob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
