    Flight on Channel 2 News Helo 10/23/08 (15+ Pics)

    Had the opportunity to go up for a flight on Channel 2's news helo this afternoon. Weather couldn't have been better! It was a very slow night news wise so we did alot of cruising around the city which allowed for some great photo ops. We departed Linden around 4:15 and first headed north past EWR then over to the city for about an hour. We then went back to Newark(the city) and then over top of EWR past the Statue along the Hudson northbound to the Bronx. We then followed the East River down to Staten Island and back to LDJ around 6:30.

    Easy to see who causes the majority of the delays at EWR when 17 of the 19 aircraft waiting for departure are Continental.

    Very cool shots.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    great shots bill! looks like you had fun. i haven't done flying like that for a few months now, and for a while there i was flying on almost a daily basis. it's great to be flying around underneath a few rotors to give you a great view of the ground below... love the EWR shots too!


    i've always wondered why all the news helos fly out of LDJ. is it because the airport is already inside the Bravo?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
