Howdy all,

I took some behind the scenes video as well as some pics at the 2011 HELI-EXPO Fly In.

I wrote an article and produced a matching video on the experience and thought I would share it.

"After landing on the big white H, we surface taxi the giant Aircrane, also nicknamed Goliath, across the parking lot of the Orange County Convention Center. Just before the Erickson Aircrane ground marshalling guy puts his arms in the shape of a big X telling us to stop, the pilot not flying asks the pilot if he see’s the little tree on the right side to which he get’s an “affirmative” reply. As the parking brake and nose wheel locks are applied, Randy Erwin, Captain of the Goliath cracks the intercom and says, “not bad for a couple of old farts eh?” "

Check out full article, video feature and photos here:
