I had the pleasure of taking my timepiece on a low level flight in the Pacific Northwest and was able to get a few shots albeit not that good. I am currently wearing the bracelet which makes it a little more formal but I really like it. Shameless plug to follow....I had the bracelet put on while in LA at Feldmar Watch Company because I wanted it done at an authorized Bremont Dealer and I can tell you that I had one of the best customer service experiences ever there!! When I purchase another Bremont it will be through them for sure!! Anyway....here are two of the better photos out of the 10 or so I took.

Interesting you've got it on a bracelet - gives the watch a lovely look. Hope you had a good flight!

Have you noticed Jake that our friends here all appear to fly fast jets or big jets while we are still winding up the elastic band!!

Wow Jake, 205 knots ground speed - that's impressive! Did you have a 60kt tailwind by any chance!!!

We had it flat out at 170kts, and a nice wind to accompany us.. ;)

Sadly it was my "last flight" so unless my dreams of buying an L-39 Albatros come true it will be my last time in a jet. But.....being airborne is awesome regardless of what it is in!!!

Thats a little sad, man! I hope it was as satisfying as I suspect it was!

Brandon, I shared one of these photos on our Instagram account and it was very well-liked! Someone asked if you have your own Instagram account that you use? If so, please give us a follow at @alt1tudeforum.

Jeremy,

I am not on Instagram yet but maybe it is a good time to jump in. I am glad that people like the photos, I wish I had gotten a few more/better ones.

Not all of us, some of us crank a couple of big handles in the cabin to go up-diddly-up!

This one is purely for pleasure but having said that there are still switches on the cyclic for dropping stores and ordnance!! Only one handle to crank but the effort is rewarded by a damn fine lunch at Amberley Castle!!

Sadly not mine so I was still up front in the left hand seat :-)

Can anyone explain why helicopters are traditionally flown from the right, never had a satisfactory explanation for this!
