I’m over in New York for the next week, shooting night aerial views over Manhattan and surrounding area.
Went flying last night in a Twin Star, with both doors off. By the time we landed I could not even feel my hands, never felt cold like it.
I was chatting to my cab driver ( Eftakhar ) on the way down to the heliport, and asked if he wanted to come along for the ride. He had never been up in a helicopter before so jumped at the chance.
I had plenty of cold weather gear to wear, as did the pilot, but Eftakhar was only wearing a jumper. Quite how he survived the flight I’m not sure. He said he enjoyed it and even gave me a free ride back to my hotel.
Heres a few sample shots :
Statue of Liberty
Newark Liberty Airport
Empire State and Chrysler Building
