My neighbor Josh flies helicopters for a living and you’ll have to look hardd to find a more competent man behind the controls. he called me up this morning to let me know that they are bringing back the bad-ass rainbow helicopter from the original Magnum PI television series. Sure enough Josh powers over the top of the hotel doing a couple of pretty cool manouevers that fired up the gathered crowd. As he came in to land, I could see that The original pilot from the TV series known at TC was seated at the controls right next to Josh. The two of them looking like life long friends. It was actually TC who inspired Josh to become a helicopter pilot when he was young. TC was touched to learn of this. Next thing ya know, the red ferrari comes driving around the corner with another of the TV series characters: Rick at the wheel. Take a look at these two boys toys and tell me you wouldn’t be happy to park those in the back yard, next to the barby.

    Great post Sean, the show was a guilty pleasure back in public school. What kid didn’t want a 308 when they grew up.

    Hey Rob, the guilty pleasure is my 30 something year old neighbor who became a heli copter pilot purely because he was inspired by the chopper in Magnum, and now, he is flying that same helicopter. He’s stoked…..
