Kmax Sighting

Recommended Posts

Just spotted a K-Max at about 1500' on a heading of ~300 a couple minutes ago over Coquitlam. It caught my attention because of the strange rotor-slap. Sounded almost like when a Japanese chef sharpens his knives... :huh:


Pretty slow mover too. Didn't quite have time to get my binos out, but got a good look at 'er... :)


I'm assuming its Heliqwest's machine heading back to Courtnay...

You might note I said it was on its way back to Courtnay. Mebbe that's 'cause I was already there and banged on that particular door before ? :P


I'm actually working right now in Langley. Finally found someone who took pity on me... :lol: Prepping an S61 that was sold to Contruction Helicopters in Michigan. Good thing I ain't scared of heights ! :shock:

No problem there Helilog. Noticed your bday is coming up. Mebbe I can wrestle up some cake for you too. And a stripper or two for dessert... :P


Btw, not so sure you wanna come out this way. The neighbors are still looking for a driver for that Screamin' Mimi... You might want to wear a hat and sunglasses... :lol:
