world of helicopters

Once we had a helicopter ride over Manhattan – I’ll never forget that view [photo 1 below]! But of course other photographers took breath-taking shots too, introducing the world of helicopters: So Ben Visbeek, also watching the twin towers [2] in Manhattan or “sOulsurfing”: Coastguard Rescue Helicopters at the Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight [3]; DVIDSHUB [4] and Defence Images [5] featured military equipment, Stewie1980 a Dutch trauma-helicopter. Maybe the most famous experiment created the photographer Andreas Feininger in Manhattan 1949, [7]: “light-tipped rotor blades of a helicopter as it takes off into the dark sky” [TIME / LIFE]! The great, latest absurd development to bring the heli topic up-to-date [8]: http://designtaxi.com/news/355873/A-Gorgeous-Bejeweled-Helicopter-Fit-For-A-French-Queen/
All following 6 photos below were sent to my group BLOG IT: click on the images to enter the galleries of the different photographers!
