Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Update: Posted this on Thursday. I lost a day in there somewhere. I really have no idea how that happened.

When warning labels rage out of control:

I get padding the pointy parts of the helicopter when the film crew is around. We’re clumsy and prone to not looking where we’re going.

I can’t help but imagine that the pilot knows damn well to remove those things before flight. Also, you know how people run to the helicopter and duck to avoid the spinning rotor blades?

They’re nuts. Those things are scary and not very far off the ground. I’m not going anywhere near the damn helicopter until they’ve stopped spinning.

    I’m sure that Vic Morrow would agree with you, if he could. Wow, how fast 30 years can fly by….

    I don’t know for sure, but it’s entirely possible that the ‘remove before flight’ warning is a FAA requirement, given how aviation is so closely regulated.
