Shawn, our skilled pilot, treated us to some exhilarating roller coaster-like maneuvers.Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we were unable to capture enough pictures with the helicopter, as Shawn had another customer to attend to promptly. Nonetheless, the tour was overall excellent and left us with great memories.js_loader
