Sling, get your head out of your ***! Pretty easy to be a critic when you sit home in front of your computer. Its called the real world. Personaly thumbs up to the pilot!

In the dark over a city sometimes easier said than done. Is there no power lines in Quebec? A guy who claims to own a couple of helicopters should know better than that.

Sling, your comment says more about you as an author than it does about the excellent decision making of the pilot involved.

 

Your brain appears to be making metal, I suspect a failure is imminent.

Please land your keyboard immediately!!
