Fancy Artwork

Check out the fancy feathers on my Helicopter helmet. Thank you to Delrel for your electrical tape artwork. I had a really good time working with the Fort Apache helicopter crew and consider them all my friends. I hope I'm able to work with them again in the future.

Maverick Camp

Maverick Camp is a now defunct fire camp on the White Mountain Apache Reservation. It's a beautiful spot and offers good placement of crews. I heard recent talk about the possibilities of re-manning it. You can see the SA315B Lama helicopter sitting on the helipad.

A close up of the SA315B Lama helicopter parked at Maverick Camp.

Reservation Lake - White Mountains AZ

This is Reservation Lake in the beautiful White Mountains of eastern Arizona. I used this lake to fill my bambi bucket while flying the Astar B3 to drop water on a fire at 9,000 feet.

Another view of the Bambi bucket with the B3 Astar.
