Helicopter In Repose

The photo was taken looking inside the cabin of my helicopter, facing aft. The blue tube at the top left is one of the flight control rods snaking its way to the rotor head; the vertical black hoses just to the right of the window are the fuel lines headed to the engine (the fuel tanks are underneath the floor); and the two nondescript gray boxes tucked away near the center are the two computers dedicated to operating the engines.

Not exactly a million parts yearning to be free as the adage goes, but they are integral to the million parts situated overhead that are.
