    Nobody is perfect OOOPs re-reading my notes
    I forgot one ride dating back to 1992 during a tour in the USSR becoming Russia courtesy of Alpha Mike Tour
    Location was St-Petersburg Rieschvska (soory for the spelling), fly over the surburban aeras around, sitting next to the pilot who handed me a hearphone with which I tried my best to grapple with russian conversation, chopper was a small MIL MI-2 still in one of the numerous Aeroflot c/s devised by the production unit.

      Helicopters -- hate 'em, hate 'em, hate 'em. Noisy, uncomfortable things that are freezing cold in the winter.

      Then again, the only ones I've ever been in are military helicopters: Chinooks, Hueys, Blackhawks. Most memorable experience for me was in the Army -- rappelling out of the side of a Huey at night was absolutely terrifying. The noise of the rotors overhead, the darkness, and not being able to see the ground at all made stepping out onto that skid one of the hardest things I've ever done.

      Maybe one of those plush executive helicopters would change my mind about the things. Maybe.

              Artillery officer for a M109 battery (155mm self-propelled howitzers.) But most of the helicopter flights were in Officer Candidate School, and the Advanced Officer Course. And always as a passenger!

                Took a ride in a U-H1 around the perimeter of the Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba back in the 80's. Nothing like flying low over the trees with your legs hanging out the door! Except the fact that some guy on the ground is pointing a nasty rifle at you and is ready to shoot if you even think about crossing over that fence....
