Same Fun, New Chopper

Witchy enjoyed her first helicopter so much, she upgraded to a more expensive beast…

… and, once more, we were chopping through the ether, this time in a bigger, prettier, more cruisy ride…

… exploring more of the islands near where Witchy lives…

… it seems unlikely a ship would ever go astray, here, unless it actually became confused at the sheer number of lighthouses in the region, but we were still drawn to the bigger ones…

… even if it was just to slingshot around them…

… and head off in another direction…

… near yet another lighthouse, we saw this gorgeous seaplane, and had to swing in for a closer view…

… like all it’s kind, this aquatic aeroplane was a work of art, and we enjoyed finding it here…

… we had been adventuring for about half an hour, before the chopper developed an engine problem entirely unique to SL; it’s rotors stopped spinning, even though we were still flying. This totally ruined the potential for good pictures, as the blades would always have been in the same place, in every picture. We decided to land, power down, then restart the engine, in the hope this would fix our problem. Witchy expertly landed us on an island airstrip, powered down to a complete stop, then restarted the engine, and lifted off, into the sky, again…

… the rotors were spinning, albeit oddly; the entire rotor assembly was jumping around on the roof. Within a few seconds, SL had kicked Witchy out of her own chopper, in fact it had crashed her viewer, and I was stuck in a pilotless helicopter I had no control over. Witchy logged back in but, even with a TP from me, she was unable to get back into the aircraft. I tried to TP home, and wound up in some bizarre, distorted SL twilight zone for several seconds, enough time to actually get photos, before I managed to successfully TP home. So, this chopper ride, while fun, ended badly, but, hey, no-one got hurt!
