Some people have all the best toys like this mini-gun filled with tracer rounds mounted on a helicopter. Only in America!

Stick a General Electric GAU-17/A minigun on a helicopter, fill it with pretty tracer rounds and have a blast – the shots from the air with the red tracer looking a lot like liquid fire.
