    flying in on a helicopter

    Hi,

    The other day, I ran across a sentence like "Rescue workers must be used to flying in on a helicopter." Is it right? Should it be revised as "...flying in a helicopter?" Thanks

    No. They fly in to a scene on a helicopter.

    "How did you get to Seattle?"; "I flew in on a plane". This is correct.
