Tuesday Feb. 23rd 2010: Heli show

  Blog, Community Blog   1   

Today I was lucky enough to partake in a media air show (down in Coal Harbor) showcasing what Rapattack does best. For the demo we did a three person rappel, and then hoisted off the barge back to the helicopter. It’s been a busy last couple days preping for this/hoping the weather holds out. When we woke up this morning in Parksville things looked grim. But by 2 this afternoon the demo was completed, and as we flew back to Qualicum the heavy rain set in. It was very cool flying in over the Olympic rings, and getting an aerial view of the flame. But rappelling onto a floating barge was not as simple as one might initially suspect. Not dissimilar from shooting a moving target.
