Our thanks to contributing photographer Tom Donoghue, who shared a photo gallery of his aerial shoot aboard a Maverick Helicopter above The Strip and Southern Nevada on Wednesday.

“I thought that I would share some aerials I took Wednesday while on a photo assignment via Maverick Helicopter at Hoover Dam, The Strip, Bishop Gorman High School, Lake Mead and McCarran International Airport.

“It was very, very cold hanging out the helicopter! But it was very rewarding in the photographs that I captured.”

Donoghue, a longtime photojournalist, is a regular contributing photographer to Vegas DeLuxe and the Las Vegas Sun.
