Black Hawk Rescue

October 27, 2015

Click here for video

The Black Hawk in the video is operating, in my opinion, at the edge of its capabilities because of the less dense air at 14,000 feet. Notice how it kind of bobbles up and down as it nears the injured man. During a flight many years ago in my Cessna 172 I took off from Colorado’s Front Range airport just east of Denver and had to make a sharp turn after take-off to stay on my Loran’s navigational beacon (before the days of GPS). It was summer and in addition to the altitude the air was also less dense from the heat. I was a bit heavy, but within safety limits, from the camping gear on board (just finished three days of camping with my son in the mountains). The mushy control seen in the bobbles of the helicopter is something I experienced in the above turn after take-off. That spooky partial loss of control startled me so much it has stayed with me for over 50 years. My hat is off to the awesome flying skills of the helicopter pilot.

Man Falls Into Mount St. Helens Crater

February 15, 2010

Above are some photos I took of St. Helens on a 1999 trip . The top one is pretty high up on the mountain and the fog was rolling in which made taking pictures almost impossible because of the moisture on the lens. The bottom two photos are at lower elevation where the fog was not a problem.  What I remember most about St Helens is how surreal it appeared; almost like the aftermath of a nuclear explosion that we see on TV. Mother Nature is truly in charge and recently reminded us how true that is with the earthquake in Haiti.
