You did great. Hard to hit moving targets firing one round at a time while flying by. Too bad you did not have a fully automatic firearm with a huge amount of ammo.   Training door gunners with 50 cal M-60's with belted ammo on a range where the goats were fair game and legal to shoot was a real kick and a flight where everyone wanted on. What kind of price tag was that hunt?

Flights are 2k per hour, suggested 2 hour minimum.  I would suggest that....2 flights,  1 hour per as there is a learning curve. Shooting down into the timber is very tough....skimming alongside a group in a field  and making broadside hits is not easily done but easier than the timber.

You could see the damage all over. They said a small group, less than a dozen, can root up an acre overnight.

Yessir. What the video doesn't do justice is the flight. Those that have served in choppers can relate I'm sure but until I went I'd have not been able to imagine the experience.  Amazing how smooth and how quickly he would maneuver.
