Eiki Miyasato, we took off for 45 minutes of exploration.
Our tour took us to places that we did not see on the ground yet. Honolulu Harbor, Magic Island, Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Royal Hawaiian Hotel were just the start. We continued over Waikiki Beach where we'd been all week. Down the coastline headed straight for Diamond Head crater. As we flew over it, we got to see the Army installation that was built inside. That was very cool!
Leaving Diamond Head behind us, we headed for the windward side of the island. Most of the locations we had driven by on our H50 tour were now being seen from the air. Here's a list of the beautiful places we flew over....and yes, there are plenty of pictures for you to enjoy. (see the link at the bottom of the page)
