Slow News Day

It's a slow news day when the lead story is about a chimpanzee getting out of his cage at the zoo. The escapee was apprehended without incident.

N6651H Pacific Helicopters Bell 206L-1 Long Ranger

One of our favorite Long Rangers, built in 1979.

Here's a couple for the HEFS aficionado's out there ... 

Normally powered by a 500 HP Allison 250-C28 SER turbine, in a pinch it also can be plugged in and run off a standard wall outlet.

Airplane Life On The Road

We try and travel unnoticed, but flight and ground crews always seem to find out when Airplane Life is onboard. We appreciate the recognition.   

Thanks to Gate Agent Amy L. for this picture of our OGG bound aircraft last week.

Aviation is in Jeopardy!

We saw contestants on "Jeopardy" save the "Aviation" collumn until the very last.

Obviously not very bright people, and probably not subscribers to Airplane Life.

Transair Hawaii

Today we salute Transair, who kicked us out of their parking lot at HNL.

Had we had a few more moments, we could have squeezed a Shorts 360 into this snapshot along with the 737-200F, the Convair 640(F), and KC-10 Extender.
