After a bit of a false start this week, I did a short job for a local company in partnership with some people I have worked with before. This job was to get some aerial shots of a tractor factory in the Chicago suburbs. The job was tied to another sortie so the timing was based on when that would happen. However, the aim was for a morning launch, hopefully to get some reasonable light.
The plant was not far from the base of the helicopter so I strapped myself into my harness and sat in the door of the S-58 to get the shots. A few orbits of the location later, a selection of shots were in the bag. They were looking for something straightforward so no great artistic expression on these. However, hopefully we got something that they like.
