The Eye in the Sky

Do you ever have the feeling that you are being watched? That someone is following you, yet you don’t see them? No matter which way you drive, that feeling of being followed, well, follows you? While there may be no one in your rear view mirror, you might look up. Most major cities utilize some type of helicpoter on their police force. The City of Houston is no exception.

You can relax though. Unless you are participating in a high speed chase or just pulled off a bank heist, the odds of one really following you is quite remote. This McDonnell Douglas MD-588E helicopter cockpit belongs to the Houston Police Department and was out for Chopper Day at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum.
