Helicopter pilot Mike Schaeffer and Panhandle Helicopter owner JR Hott captured this incredible phenomenon along the coast of Panama City Beach in Florida. When the conditions are just right (a perfect mix of temperature, humidity and winds), a dramatic fog rolls over the high-rise condos located right on the coastline. Apparently this may happen only a handful of times a year. These photos were taken on February 5th, 2012 @ 12:40pm local time.
Panhandle Helicopter offers various helicopter tours as well as aerial photography services. The company was purchased by the Hott family in 2008. The helicopter can hold up to 3 passengers (max weight of 300 lbs per seat) and is restricted to a radium of 25-miles.
