East River + Queensboro Bridge / heli-flight

Newer Older

we rent a helicopter 1997, twin towers still standing... - it was hard to get a heli-ride, not to get the tickets, the whole waiting room was filled up with a crowd having tickets (at least 100 persons, I think): but only 4 persons each flight! so my wife had to look very deep in the eyes of the door dragon to come through (I was her quick shadow); though the weather was foggy we had much fun... maybe I should upload some more pics, for example crossing Central Park etc.; I heard after September eleven it is forbidden to fly directly over the top of the skyscrapers?

    Frits: As I understood the last time I was there (2006), it is forbidden to fly over lower Manhattan with planes, and with helicopters you have to keep altitude. You are allowed to land on some rooftops still though. But you need to have a permit to do so and that permit is hard to get. This is what I heard, that is...
