I took a helicopter ride over Panama City Beach with Panhandle Helicopters while in Florida recently and was greeted with the above as we circled above St Andrews State Park. As my first ever helicopter ride I was nervous to say the least, especially as we tipped from side to side as a turn was made. But the fear was soon forgotten as the beautiful beach and state park appeared below with the stunning colours of the water.
It’s not until you see things from above that you can really take in the beauty of some areas. Panama City Beach is lined with buildings so it’s easy to lose sight of what the area looks like but as soon as you are in the air the impact is instant.
