    Nice bird Alex, I'll bet that's an easier one to shoot.
     
  4. Don't they use these to look for bad guys??
     
  5. They do. Also for Search and Rescue.
    We have an air Coast Guard base in Opa-Locka airport (KOPF). The flight path goes right over my local beach jetty so every so often I see them, plus Dauphine Helicopters and also cargo DC-3s and similar older planes on their way to the Bahamas or just out to sea.
     
  6. Doesn't John Travolta have his home "base" near there??
     
  7. No. He's near Ocala in North Central Florida. Opa-Locka is a suburb of Miami (South Florida). There's about a five hour drive from one to the other. :smile:
