Bell 407 Police Chopper

I kinda hate this one just because it shows me how sharp the others aren't. It was tough because you have to shoot at 1/50th - 1/100th to get good rotor blur. And they were moving fast...

 

I like how this looks air-to-air. It's not. Perry just dropped the nose and did some low, fast fly-bys, which made it look as if we were up there with him because there is no reference point to reveal the dipped nose.
