On July 22, I got to ride in ABLE (Air Born Law Enforcement), one of 4 helicopters that San Diego Police operates.

  My friend Blair is a crewman assigned to ABLE.  We went up for a 3 hour hop in a Bell Jet Ranger Long Ranger with The Pilot - Donny, Blair and myself.  This is Blair's regular job. Two or three times each shift he goes up on hops to support ground units.  I took my camera, of course, and snapped off a few hundred shots (Don't panic, they're not ALL here :) )
