Last November I was invited by Pilot John and my friend Fred Greco to take a Sunrise Helicopter ride over the South Shore in a state of the art Bell Jet Ranger.


We have featured Fred and his outstanding aerial images before here, here, and here.

Part I covered the ride from Republic Airport straight across the Bay and East to Sore Thumb.

After passing Sore Thumb, Captain John brought the chopper back North over Captree Island and most of the way back across the bay to allow a few shots of Robert Moses Bridge with the Sun behind it.

We then flew back towards Fire Island Inlet and Robert Moses State Park.  I will follow-up shortly with more images as we made our way East over the rest of the Fire Island communities all the way down to Old Inlet.
