Chopper, Baby"A shot of our heli at 7 a.m. in Petersburg. This is an A-Star B2, the standard choice for heli filming and known as the "Ferrari of Helicopters" in mountain settings. The pilots from this company are some of the best I have flown with. They work in and around the Alaskan mountains every day, so you know you're safe. We have used this particular machine known as '204' for many seasons. The best part of the day is when you are sitting in her and the engine fires up -- it's like no other sound on earth. Shot on my point-and-shoot in manual."
