    @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:
