Putting everyone in a spin: the chopper over Kamala beach this afternoon

Chopper Spins Anger at Phuket Beach

Sunday, July 12, 2015
PHUKET: A private helicopter put tourists and lifeguards into a spin today when it hovered low over Kamala beach. Lifeguards waved, whistled and generally made the chopper unwelcome as it stuck around close to shore. At least one rich person's 90-metre yacht has a helicopter on the deck.

Nothing wrong with this mates. Just sat down in Pattaya with a Saudi prince in a go go bar ( friend of mine the prince and owner) and drank a couple of champagne. At the same time a friend of mine called from Tai Pan in Phuket that he have to move from the table because tables were booked. !) minutes later 50 Koreans ran in for an hour and then left. The owner of Thai Pan is an old Expat (I know his name and face). Just making money of the market.
Why not?? He have to adjust to make money, Hey.

Forget about Phuket.

That's a Robinson R44, one of the most affordable helicopters one can buy and very popular.

Even without the tail number, identifying the pilot should be a very simple task.
