    About a week ago I flew a mission up to Wiesbaden which is near Frankfurt. We took off at 5 in the morning and we got to fly right into a beautiful sunrise. I hope you enjoy the pictures. You can kind of see Frankfurt in the distance with the skyscrapers and everything in some of the last pictures.

    The pictures of the Airbus and the 747 were taken from our helicopter while we were flying. I thought it was pretty neat to have them that close over our aircraft.

    so you got routes you just can't go out and wing it but then again the racket would irritate some of the locals

    No we can not just go and wing it. We have a 500ft hard deck when we are not in the NOE roughts.

    There are several places such as Hohenfels and Grafenwoer where we are not allowed to be higher than 100ft.

    I have to get my camara from my flight bag at work (which sucks cuz I could not take any pictures of my very good prime rib that I made today), on it I have some great pics of my flight the other day which was an instrument flight in the clouds. the clouds were so beautiful up there.
