helicopter - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
...there was a helicopter hovering in the air behind him. Where had it come from? It was painted red and yellow, a light, single-engine aircraft with a figure in dark glasses and helmet hunched over the controls. The helicopter was a Colibri EC120B, one of the quietest in the world. It swung around over him, it's blades beating the air.
The helicopter's subdued green paint was enveloped in a cloud of sandy dust. The blades that beat the air had much the same effect as a small tornado on the loose ground cover. As it came lower Gina covered her ears, held her breath and closed her eyes until she heard the slowing of the blades.
