    No Amount of Preparation and Planning...

    …can suitably replace sheer dumb luck!

    I had just been asked by a friend of mine to shoot a particular formation for her. To do so I decided I needed a lens change. About the second I got the lens changed out, here comes this guy roaring up the canyon flying the “knap”.

    I started firing! Glad he didn’t return fire! Looks like he may be unarmed or he probably would have!

    I was with a Gunnery Sgt. (Ret.) and was informed this is an Apache. I checked and it turns out it probably is. I’m not a true flying contraption aficionado, but seems like there are several here.

    So I humbly submit these for you.

    If they had been another 20 feet lower in #3 you could have got the Apache against the cliff face without fighting the sky for exposure, shame

    Well caught on your part though a good series
