Coming back to the very first picture:

Iíve worked in Nigeria for four years and have seen this kind of sceneries far too often. Our company owned a small airstrip in Warri where lots of people ran criss-cross the runway. If there was a plain to land a horn had to give signal to get rid of all the people. There was also an intersection with one of the busiest road and the end of the runway. During take off and landing the road was blocked. But during a traffic jam it could happen that a Twin Otter lined up behind a car to get to the holding point. At the holding point was a soup-shop, where the propeller wash cooled the hot soups. Iíve seen running Mamas with their babies on the back and the basket on the head running for safety during an approach so many times. It is nothing but crazy.
If helicopter flying would be difficult, engineers would do it.

also, if there are any problems, let me know. i'm uploading these blindly to Putfile.com as i don't have quicktime on my machine here at work and can't install it because of user rights so i can't verify the videos. - thanks.
The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement. The night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities in life to experience all three at the same time. - Unknown

I am not sure, but I think *.jpe is the same format as *.jpg. Have you tried to just manually change the file extension? Otherwise I think you'd need some kind of software, like Photoshop...

This guy was trying to fly to Ely.  His amazing navigation put him in the next valley and when he tried to turn on the light they obviously weren't ther.  He ran out of fuel and obviously crashed.  He walked away but the crashsight is only about 15 minutes away from the airport.

Sorry Mike didn't mean to dissappoint you but this is the picture I wanted to put on I was just trying to figure out how to put pictures on.  So anyway I hope this one is a little better.  Reminds me of flying in Ely after it snows.
WOW I did that!
