Wondering what the difference is between shots taken from a helicopter versus those taken from an airplane? Have a look at our Airplane Galleries to see high altitudes and expansive views. These pictures are wonderful for seeing an entire work site, catching the skyline in the background, or for use in labeling of nearby landmarks. Helicopter images can accomplish this as well, with the added advantage of being able to get down to much lower altitudes. This is perfect for deeper obliques and (although airplanes get very good closeups) nothing beats a chopper for capturing architectural detail.
