Marine One

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by pbe gummi bear, Aug 10, 2009.

  1. This past weekend I heard jets out of my 22nd floor windows and saw the Marine one taking a few laps near Boston harbor. I assume they are testing the heli with the GE engines, as they are manufactured just a few miles away. I managed to get one good pic before it went away:

    Nice shot. Careful, the Secret Service may be after you for shooting that in public :biggrin:
     
  3. Nice one but it's always better with some prop blur. This is difficult to do in helicopters as they rotate slower than airplanes.

    Nice shot.

    The President is going to be here in Portsmouth this afternoon. I wonder if it has to do with his visit?

    Here's one I took outside my home as I was playing around with my 70-200mm f/2.8 len and TC 1.7 attached to it. I don't think this was Marine One, but I got lucky as it passed near the house.
