I wanted to share this because of the other thread on this forum discussing a crash of a Bergen do to a tail failure.

Obviously Gary Travis wasn't too worried about tail failure this day. This was no surprise to me, as I have seen him doing this kind of flying numerous times.

One of the keys is proper building of the heli, and maintanance along the way.

However, I happened to notice a little difference in his tail set up compared to the regular set up.

Here's the link

Whom ever deleted the first post and its pictures are doing a disservice to the rest of us. I for one would have liked to see what all the fuss was about.

I guess they caught so much heat for whatever happened that they don't have much to say about it right now and hope it will just go away.

The only heat caught was on the forums, the show aired here in Utah on Thanksgiving night. I was happy with the footage that was used in the show. There are opportunitys out there for all, you just have to get out and beat a few bushes.

Gary,

Was this show shot in Logan Utah for the Pauni family?

I caught an extreme makeover home edition tonight that aired originally over Thanksgiving weekend here in the detroit area. There were a few scenes that looked like they could have been from a heli.

I didn't shoot the one in Logan, the one I shot was in Sandy UT, they were both being done at the same time.
