    I didn't even hear it until it was over Cabella's. You can usually hear lifestar long before you see it.

    I have no idea when it's leaving, so the odds of me getting a clip of it leaving is pretty low.

    I get to see them all the time, unfortunately I can't take pictures or video or describe them in any detail. They are pretty cool, and very quiet in person, about as loud as rolling down a window at 55 when you're the only car on the road.

    The Blue Angels practice for air shows over our Fort Worth office... when I'm there, I'm the only idiot looking around at the planes. To everyone else it's an every day thing.

    Pretty awesome platform, I do a lot of integration onto these bad boys. It's even better to see them at night because they have a green light on their rotors so when you see them in the air its likes two green halos flying through the air.
