My gyrocopter buddy got a new bird!

There are two guys who fly out of KREG who share a hangar with at least four gyrocopters. One of them frequently flies a path that takes him over my house and for years I’ve stepped outside to wave hello when I hear him coming. He usually flies a yellow bird. Last week he was flying something new.

I also happened to have my wife’s D50 handy, so I was able to get better pictures than I can with my iPhone.

After circling my place, he headed north as usual. I happened to catch him waving to someone else on the ground.

I’m putting the big lens on in anticipation of his next flyby. I should be able to get something even better then.
