I was here surfing Runryder, and I got interrupted by some Blackhawks flying over

Don't get to see Blackhawks very often in my neck of the woods, but it is always nice to be home when they do fly over.

I used to live just north of Barksdale AFB in Bossier City Louisiana. I had B-52's and A-10's fly over my house all the time (They had squadrons based there) as it was a North/South runway. It got to where I could tell the type of aircraft it was by the sound of the engines. This was when I was first learning to fly a cox .049 powered glider in a wheat feild behind my house. There's nothing like looking at your glider up in the air and a huge B-52 flies right over head and the sky goes dark while the little glider has a unique backdrop for a few seconds. That was awesome!

High Voltage just works better

My office is located on a hilltop (temporary construction office) that overlooks a residential area of Fort Riley, KS. The residential area is west of the departure side of the Fort Riley Airfield. Helicopters fly by my window every day.

Then the hill where the office is located, is part of a ridgeline with a lot of ravines in it towards the training areas. Scout helicopters and Apache helicopters use the ravines for attack training and evasive maneuvers. I need to take some pictures and viceo the next time I see them around.

U may want to reconsider taking pictures and video. Just saying. Uncle Sam likes to keep certain things under wraps.

I live right by Lockheed Martin and Dobbins Air Base and they used to test fly F-22's all the time. Now the production line is being switched over to the F-35's so I'll start to see those.

We used to have F16's flying over all the time from the local Air Guard, but they changed missions and no longer have jets anymore.

No worries there, I was a soldier here between 1997 and 2005. Now I work as a civilian building homes for the soldiers. My office IS on federal grounds. Is not like I'm taking pictures from the outside-in. I'm already in here. I could walk right into the hangar and take pictures if I wanted to. Still have some friends around here.

Don't count on it. We are only building the mid fuselage here. Final assembly is in Fort Worth.

When I was younger I worked at the local airport as a fuel boy. Blackhawks would practice picking up containers and setting them down (very kewl to watch). When they where done I had to fuel them up with the blades still going!!! This is called a hot fuel!!! The first time I did it, it scared the crap outta me. You have to ground the heli then get a ladder out...yes a ladder and get within a couple feet of the running blades to refuel.

Having served 11 years in the Army, I did my share of riding in Blackhawks. Nape Of The Earth brings new definition to the word Fun.

Now, when I hear any helicopter I go to the window to see what it is. There is a MedStar helicopter that uses the parking lot of the rural fire department building for ambulance transfers. That parking lot is about 800 feet from my house. It's always cool because they come burning in low around my house and land. It happens a few times a year. I'm a total helicopter geek, can't help it, always have been.

, Same here! Seen very few blackhawks around here, Apaches about
every hour of every day though, it seems. We are right in the heart
of B-2 country, but see more A-10s and Apaches.

Then we also have 2 seperate medical units based around us, so see/hear those almost hourly too.

I also run to the window or out the door when I here helis or jets flying over. Working in a hospital, I get to see the medical choppers take off and land quite often.

Taking military picture
The army don't care if you take pictures.I am in the military going on 32 yrs. All in aviation currently working on UH-60A&L Blackhawks and you can take as many picture as you like.If you ever been to any air shows you can still take as many picture as you desire.Sometimes we fly into many high school or business for static display and people take pictures and videos.It's no big deal guys!
