Here is one of those little training helicopters hovering prior to landing. In the background is a Piper on final approach for landing. This was really a luck shot. My purpose in being at the Hillsboro airport that day was to photograph helicopters. I saw the Piper turn on final approach for landing and then promptly forgot about it as I was concentrating on the helicopter. Was I ever surprised when I looked at this shot on the LCD screen and saw that I had captured both aircraft!

Nice capture Cal,

You must have been using a fast shutterspeed since there is no blur on either of the Props

Very cool, Cal. I still haven't found a "real" helicopter.
