Houston's first Continental Dash 8 Q400 arrives after a demonstration flight around south Texas.


"I think it was worth getting up at 5am, driving 1.5 hours to IAH and standing in the cold morning breeze to catch this brand new aircraft owned by Colgan Air on it's first 45 minute demonstration flight for CO execs!"

New Life Flight Eurocopters!


N457JD, the just-delivered 2007 EUROCOPTER DEUTSCHLAND GMBH MBB-BK 117 C-2 photographed at Pearland Regional airport, their south base and fleet maintenance facility.

Even though the airframes are similar, the aircraft systems are vastly improved, prompting Eurocopter to rename it the EC-145 to differentiate it from the BK-117.

N457JD is just one of six newly delivered airframes. Life Flight's pilots have all transitioned to the new glass cockpit aircraft and the fleet is operational, retiring three BK117s and a B0105.

Hermann Hospital's Life Flight program started in 1976 as America's second air medical program, flying the SA319B Alouette.

HoustonSpotters Day at Wings & Wheels!


During the December 2007 Wings & Wheels, HoustonSpotters members were escorted all over Hobby airport by HOU operations. It was an awesome day, and we were able to get unique shots that no one else could get! Here we are at the approach end of runway 4, with a plane landing overhead!

Channel 2 Chopper!


Shown here is the KPRC Channel 2 1994 Bell 206-L4, with FSI gyro-stabilized camera gimbal. KPRC's is the only helo based at the TV station offices, with all others based at HOU.

Helicopters Inc. owns and staffs the news helicopters in Houston. Having done photo jobs for their Chief Pilot, I have been allowed to fly in the various helos, and been able to shoot air-to-air with many of the pilots and their cameramen.

New LifeFlight Eurocopter!


This HoustonSpotters EXCLUSIVE is a pre-unveiling picture of N452MH, the just-delivered 2007 EUROCOPTER DEUTSCHLAND GMBH MBB-BK 117 C-2. Eurocopter has recently renamed it the EC-145 to differentiate it form the BK-117.

This shot was taken of the first of six ordered, prior to it being stocked for its medical mission. Life Flight pilots are transitioning to the new all glass cockpit aircraft and it should be operational in a few months. Hermann Hospital's Life Flight program started in 1976 as America's second air medical program, flying the SA319B Alouette. Today, it flies three BK117s and a B0105.
