Bell 206 Helicopter



 While driving around in the prairie, I saw this helicopter hovering very low to the ground, almost on the ground. It then began to move forward very fast, and flew almost directly overhead. Luckily I was able to get out in time and take a few pictures.

I suspect this is a Bell 206, which is a single engine or twin engine twin rotor multipurpose helicopter. They are made by the Bell Helicopter Textron company is Mirabel, Quebec.

This is the C-17 Globemaster III, a larger military transport aircraft.


This specific one, serial 0185, is a  Boeing C-17A Lot XII Globemaster II, and is named "Spirit of America". The "0" in front of "185" may indicate a ten year old aircraft.

Cessna 208B "Caravan" Serial Number N765FE. Click for Larger.
This is a Cessna 208B "Caravan", a fixed wing single engined aircraft, with a turboprop engine. They typically seat nine passengers with a single pilot, but this one belongs to Federal Express and is used for cargo.

This picture was taken at the same airshow as the below two entries, however this plane actually interrupted the airshow. I actually happen to know the pilot.

F-15 E Strike Eagle.  The F-15 E is basically the same as the regular variants of the F-15, however the F-15 can be used for ground attack, rather than the regular F-15's, which are "pure fighters".

F/A-18D.  The  F/A-18 is a modern, supersonic, and Aircraft Carrier capable fighter/attack aircraft (F/A). It is still in service primarily with the US Navy and US Marine Corps, but also with the Royal Australian Air Force and the Spanish Air Force. 

This was at the Natrona County Airport airshow in 2006. I've got a lot more photos from that airshow, but I wont put them up all at once.
