Every near mid-air, near miss or whatever you want to call almost having a collision in the air with another aircraft has been with a CH-46. The last time it happened I got caught in the rotor wash at 50 AGL. It was a rodeo and no one was more surprised that I did not hit the ground than me. Which led to an interesting personal interaction with the A/C commander after I landed.What this.
I ducked out of work to see her last landings at KBMI. The wind was howling that day and I think he only did one pass down 11 and circled to land on 20.Prairie Aviation Musuem at BMI. I'm always amazed at just how big these things were.
Here's one complete with the extra nookie:NICE, thank you! told ya there was extra nookie on this one.

As a first-timer it was amazing waking up surrounded by planes, leaving my tent and seeing the powered chutes already enjoying the day.

Who would have guessed that "Super Guppy" doesn't want an intersection departure. Back-taxiing to the end. Takeoff video here: SuperGuppyTakeoff(GoPro)
*CAUTION* wake turbulence...

The Osprey is much bigger in real life than I expected. Two videos if you're interested. One is the aeroshell team landing right before osprey takeoff, and then the osprey takeoff. Sorry, I'm a bad camera when when zoomed in

Stopped by the Daher exhibit and confirmed that the TBM and Kodiak are out of my price range for the foreseeable... forever. But a man can dream.

Great photos, thanks for sharing.Took a girl to St. Jude in Memphis for Lifeline this morning, and decided to follow the river back north.

"Tower Rock"...I had seen pictures of this, but had no idea where it was, so I was surprised to find it.

I was 1000 agl most of the way. The phone has a pretty wide angle lense. I basically never fly that low, but I got a wild hair. The airport I dropped off my passengers at was M01, which is right on the river, and I saw lots of exposed sand bars that would make excellent emergency runways. I love flying along rivers and seeing all the infrastructure and old river towns.Great photos, thanks for sharing.
I'm curious what altitude you flew? These all seem rather low, like 2500 AGL.
