We had the pleasure to see some of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in New York Harbor last week-end. With crowds lining both sides of (and on) the Hudson, the unique and expensive racing sailboats were impressive.
Overcast skies dominated the first of two days, and racing was limited due to less than acceptable wind.
Overhead, however, were the ever-present helicopters, offering race coverage and sightseeing perspectives for those fortunate… or were they?
Although it looks worrisome from the camera’s long lens, day in and day out “Air Traffic Control” manages to do a remarkable job of keeping these helicoptors spaced apart within controlled flight paths – a fact underscored by safety records.
