Helicopter Ride - landing on a glacier!

Finally, I got over my fright of helicopters by riding this very new one-month old red helicopter, and with two pilots on board, and my sister VTer jumpingwithnorman by my side!

My sister paid for the very expensive one and a half hour ride --- and it was worth every dollar! I suggest you do it too!

    Great photo's Norman. Glad you have got over your fear of Helicopters, and got to enjoy that marvellous scenery.

    Exciting, you now need to do bridge jumping, sky diving, and jumping off waterfalls or cliffs. :)

    Quite agree with you such a ride (and such photos and video) were worth every dollar!

    I must say it was an experience of a lifetime! The Chopper seems to be very modern and with latest navigation. I am sure you felt out of the world!! Great achievement indeed.
