The final heavy hitter of our “Sea Hunt” two season-long saga comes in the form of a airborne pilot-type jacket: the “Helo”. We made a signal yellow Helo. And although Tina Turner said we don’t need another one, we made a navy blue version.
Are you still here? I know nothing about flying machines, but I’ve always found helicopters fascinating. All kinds of shapes and colors, unlikely floating crystal bubbles in metallic frames, hovering and defying gravity and the winds…
“When the command is GO… SCRAMBLE!” said the old GI Joe™ action pilot leaflet I dug out of surviving bits and pieces of childhood in an old metal trunk.I was not much into video games or fire trucks as a kid, but kinda dug helicopters for some reason.
TV programs were full of them. Félix, the bright yellow Hughes 300 lifting off from the helideck of the Calypso with Cousteau on board meant Adventure. TC’s chopper in all its ‘Verner Panton’ paint job glory…
