Long Description:
It's a real helicopter turned into a weathervane on the vast prairies of Southwestern Saskatchewan, something fun to break up the monotony of grain fields and grain elevators between Moose Jaw and Medicine Hat.

It also serves a purpose -- the winds can blow pretty hard here, and it's nice to know how fast and from what direction the winds are blowing when you are in a high-profile vehicle.
