When you're photographing from a helicopter, the standard approach is to exclude any element of the aircraft, to capture pixels only of the subject — the scene, the structure, the aircraft — that you are there to capture.
Finally, some double-vision. Not only do we see outside this EMS aircraft through the windscreen, etc., we see the view that the pilot sees, reflected in his visor — the expanse of terrain and clouds and sky.
Note that each of these images was created using a very wide-angle lens, equipment you'll also need to use if you want to capture the aircraft and its environs. The payoff is a more interesting perspective on the equipment, the missions, and the people.

Photography is a massive field. Aerospace photography less so. In these writings I share stories and tips.
