Prospect US PRESIDENTIAL whirlbirdy spectacle
About the best hilight for the year ?
5 helicopters--2 hueys and 3 sikorskys--landed on the ballfields I presumed in a test run.it was an awesome spectacle with loud noise and dust and dirt blown in our faces..
Addendum : President Obama is visiting a Crown Heights High School of technology this Friday. hence the test run...like I said. Awesome to see these giant whirlybirds.
