Eric Joe was visiting his parent's home and flew his Hexacopter low and slow over what he says was private property and a shared county access road. Joe's neighbor had his son blast the $1,500 aircraft out of the sky with a 12-gauge shotgun ... and admitted it to Joe. The neighbor said he thought it was a "CIA surveillance device." A U.S. District Judge in New York has delivered a win-win ... or some might say a lose-lose ... decision on helicopter restrictions at East Hampton Airport. The judge said that the town of East Hampton could not impose a "one-flight-per-week" limit on h

Just as we were getting ready to put the script to bed for this episode of Airborne, ANN's Jim Campbell got the word that the long-awaited first flight of the Bell 525 Relentless helicopter had taken place -- and it apparently went quite well.
