Bruce Needham: Loraine Christina was starting that search here. Welcome.
Loraine Christina: Thank you for having me.
Bruce Needham: Our pleasure.
Loraine Christina: Where we starting out today here?
Bruce Needham: This is our maintenance facility. Our maintenance thing before we start us right here, just to do all the maintenance, keep the aircraft fine tuned and ready to go through out today?
Loraine Christina: You know I've never been up to be in the helicopter before.
Bruce Needham: Well, it’s going to be once in a lifetime experience for you.
Loraine Christina: A little nervous.
Bruce Needham: Yeah?
Loraine Christina: It’s going to be okay, is that right?
Bruce Needham: Most people get a little nervous before they been in here. Once they get in it there. It all goes away.
Loraine Christina: So where are we off to today?
Bruce Needham: We’re going to go to the River Dam today.
Loraine Christina: How many people can you fit in there?
Bruce Needham: Put six people and plus the pilot so I have total of seven people on board. Yeah, over the years they’ve kind of designed this one for tour of them. It has got great visibility upfront. They widen it out a little bit because of more comfortability in front and inside for everybody.
Loraine Christina: Oh, I love it. The smoothest thing in the world.
Bruce Needham: The smoothest thing in the world, you see a lot of people think that they think it’s that old stuff where it’s going to be a real fancy, real noisy and all that fears just disappear. You don’t get the sensational running the runway like you're doing in an airplane where it such back into your seat.
Loraine Christina: Making it breathtaking—look at this.
Bruce Needham: This is like me coming up here in front of this now. Now this is result about a building the dam right in the middle of the Colorado and we’re back in this upgraded like me. You can see over the epic coming up over here right in front that was built between 1931 and 35 and it cost $49 million with the dams coming into view right now at 726 feet high that’s about 221 meters, 660 feet wide down the bottom, about 45 feet across the top. Now the fourth concrete into that thing 24 hours a day for 18 months.
Loraine Christina: Can you imagine?
Bruce Needham: Unbelievable, back in the 30’s, the construction and the engineering that went on to that is amazing. Do you see the bridge they are building right now that they’ve got the arch? They finally met there at the middle of the arch. Now they just got to build the roadway going across to the top. It’s nice to see from that perspective right now because you can see all the guide wires. Now when that road gets build across the top all that guide wires always has got to be natural clean bridge.
Loraine Christina: And in time we got to the end now.
Bruce Needham: We got to see and its stay, yeah. Now you can see and look down the water, the spillways. Look at your right there. The water will come up and overflows so it goes down those peak on its own each side.
This curve is about 125 miles on it. You know a lot of people think oh it just feel like we’re moving and I know the closer you get to the ground that’s where you pick up the sensation of speed. But right now we’re probably doing the 150 miles an hour.
Loraine Christina: You're kidding me.
Bruce Needham: Why?
Loraine Christina: It doesn’t feel like it at all.
Bruce Needham: Is that?
Loraine Christina: Again it just feels like nothing, it feels good to me. That was nothing like landing an airplane. I felt nothing. It’s like a bird landing on the branch.
