While in Roanoke Va this afternoon, while training a pilot for upcoming instrument flight check, we did a running (single engine) landing at the airport. When we picked up to a hover to prepare for take off, there was a black SLK parked beside the fence. The guy and lady were standing beside the car and as we passed I gave them a thumbs up. They both returned the gesture at the same time without looking at one another. As we took off and went into the clouds I glanced toward them and they were staring at us. They were probably thinking how neat to fly a helicopter, while I was thinking, how cool to be out riding in a nice SLK instead of working. Think I will go for a ride in the morning. :Beer: In the SLK. Forgot the SLK's not here yet, have to drive the Lightning.
