Flying at about 300 - 400 feet, above the ridgeline?

I used to watch C5's land at Lajes Field in the Azores from about 800 feet above, and a mile to the side the runway: Quite a show. The best fly over I've seen so far was a Shuttle piggy backed on a 747 that flew about 2K feet over Prescott Valley about a year ago.

Actually, [b]Ponyboy[/b], REALERIC and I were once out at the Farm when we [u]were[/u] surprised by a very, very quiet helicopter flying directly over us! It couldn't have been more than 2-300 feet above us, but the sound we heard was similar to someone mowing their lawn a block away! It was the most absolutely 'noiseless' object that I have ever heard fly. And, of course, it was [b]black[/b]! Eric The(Skeered)Hun[>]:)]

Thanks for the Hospitality. This week of work has really been depressing...I had to work. A good weekend with Great Shooters and PEOPLES is a "A GOOD THING". [:D] Jeff
