Great clear shot. You must have been ready with your camera. Do they rescue people as well as guard the coast? Our SES rescue helicopter crew just received bravery awards for rescuing people from roofs and trees during the flood and as the light was fading. But they were crying because they couldn't rescue everybody.

Very nice shot. I never seem to be able to photograph anything that flies... always too late with the camera.

Great picture! I haven't been over to Virginia Beach in about 3 years or so. I think I'm due for a trip.

nice shot Denise Hope they were on excersise rather than a rescue. Ross was painting his beach Kiosk and had a helicopter on beach Patrol Come over the cliff over his KIOSK AND COVERthe wet paint in sand, He couldnt be cross because one day it might be him or the grandkids that they are rescuing.

This is so strange. I can't believe I missed so many of your posts. I'm having fun catching up though.
