MMike Posted February 5, 2012 Report Share Posted February 5, 2012 Ok so I was at my parents place today. I took my girls to the local sledding hill which looks over lax st Louis. Ie. part of the st Lawrence. Behind some trees I heard what sounded like a helicopter but it seemed too low. So I thought maybe it was a hovercraft or something. But it was the sound was moving too fast. Sure enough from behind the trees emerges an ec120. And he was low. Way low. If he was 30 off the deck I'd be surprised. But let's be generous. And say he was 60 feet. I got a good view and he was about as high as the aircraft is long. But again let's say he was even 80 feet up. And he was doing a good 100 kias. I have a knack for judging speed. I just do. You'll have to take my word for it. But fine say it was only 60 kias. But he was moving. He was flying over the frozen lake. So it's not like he would hit anything. But is that a bad idea? 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
