    @4DCW: Yes. There is background talk. The Huey was recorded at a hotel during a war veteran's reunion. Were you under the impression that I paid hundreds of dollars to get a helcopter to land in an isolated field just to get a clean recording on a comsumer recorder, then share it for free? :D

    White fly by you can hear people talking. Just put on your headphones and turn up louder.

    Nice sound. I've used it in an audio play, 'Kid's Stuff', on the soundwork-uk.co.uk website and credited you.

    Thanks for the great sound! Wanted to let you know that we used it in our first game, S.M.A.K. robots. (You can find it on Google Play and the Amazon App Store.) We credited you both in the game and on our website here:

    Wow! Thank you very much for the download. The plan is to play this audio to open the first night's program for "The Wall That Heals," a half-scale travelling replica of the Vietnam Wall in DC. It will be in Newtown Park, Johns Creek, GA, 3/29 - 4/2. This will be a powerful way to open the display and will certainly transport the Vietnam veterans in attendance back to their time in-country. Imagine the memories that will come rushing back! This will be the largest free public event in Johns Creek for 2017.
