February 29 – Bell 407 , Piper Cherokee 140

Monday, February 29 — In at 8:40 after errands downtown. Sunny and calm. Several Air Tractor agribirds were on the distant ramp. Met the pilot of a locally operating medevac Bell 407. I had never seen a 407 in local livery before. The pilot said it’s faster than the Eurocopter EC-130s that the company also flies. Photographed it inside, out and departing. Nice visit. Worked on photo sorting ALL DAY after a few minutes in Intake Room with foreign country clips and articles. That got old fast. Back to pictures downstairs because there were some visitors occupying the meeting room down the hall, and I wanted the office with me here and open in case they cared to visit. They did not. Still I accomplished a lot with the photo work. Left for home at 7 in good spirits. Day rating B.

Pictures are of a Piper Cherokee 140B were taken Sunday, February 28. Those of the Bell 407 were taken February 29.
