Near our apartment complex is a Police station, complete with dual heli-pads on it’s roof. The other day there seemed to be a bit of a formal bash on over at the station. Police on the ground performed drills whilst a Police helicopter did laps of the Police building interspersed with hovering over the performers below. A few times the helicopter flew off over other parts of Shenzhen before returning to lap and hover around the Police station. The most unusual part of the whole thing was having to look down at the flying helicopter. This thing was flying at lower altitudes than we can take a shower!
I took a short video of the chopper doing a lap of the Police building. You can click here to watch it, but be warned - it’s a 3.47 MB file so it’s for broad-banders or the very patient only.
I could hear my own little indoor electric helicopter whispering, ‘I want to grow up to be like that!’
