Spotted on a ride on New Hackensack Road around what’s grandly known as the Hudson Valley Regional Airport:
Indeed, it was.
I watched a private airshow for a few minutes:
The same helicopter thumped over our house, about two miles from the runway as the chopper flies, while I was getting ready for the ride, and it was hovering as I reached the airport. I think the pilot was practicing, because the chopper made very precise movements across the airport, translated front / back / left / right, and hovered motionless for minutes at a time despite wind gusts.
Looks like enjoyably intense concentration!
