OCTOBER 2016 - The view from a helicopter

In October's Column i joined the Snyder Family from Smoketown Helicopters as we went for a quick ride to see my own backyard. The Snyders have a strong passion for Lancaster County and Aviation, and they are very proud to be able to share that passion with you. 

Obviously I'm not going to give away the whole story about how awesome the Snyders are, how cool it was zooming over the countryside, and how you're supporting a veteran family owned local business when you fly with them. However, I do have a few extra photos that didn't make the cut.

A few cracks in the clouds opened up to illuminate the runway as we made our return to the Smoketown Airport (S37)

Amish Camals

Amish Camals

Over the last few years there have been more and more Camals popping up at Amish farms. Some say there are health benefits to Camal's milk over Cow's milk. Honestly I haven't dig into it myself, but it does make for a good hump day picture.
