It…it…it’s just so…UGLY…!

Cool!

Bell V-280 … they even put the nose wheel on the wrong end!

EDIT: SH-60/UH-60 does this too but please ignore these obvious examples … I wanna make fun of the V-280!

This is crazy. I can’t tell if it is a training exercise or not but that pilot! Wow!

Like a shark emerging from the depths…

“A video of a helicopter flying incredibly low over a fog shrouded road that was shot two days ago in Kirkstone Pass in the English Lake District of County Cumbria…”

Per The Aviationist:

“It’s likely the helicopter in the video is a Eurocopter AS365N3 Dauphin II, nicknamed “Blue Thunder” by the British tabloids, that belongs to the Joint Special Forces Aviation Wing (JSFAW). Specifically, the unit flying the aircraft is probably the 658 Squadron based at SAS HQ at Credenhill, near Hereford. The elite aviation unit was previously known as 8 Flight AAC until September 2013.”

I think they are doing a snatch-and-grab on the cyclist… :wink:

”Cmdr. Bond. M wants you in her office right this minute, sir.”
”But I can’t let anybody at MI6 see me in tights like this! You’ve got to swing past a tailor on Savile Row”
”Sir, I have strict orders to fly you straight to the office. Something about a russian oligarch about to destabilize the world economy and kidnap her majesty”
”Again?”
”Apparently so, sir”
”Okay then”
”Strap in, sir”
”But what about my bike? Q will have a seizure if I leave it out here”

It was definitely IFR - I Folow Road :slight_smile:

Either hungry for a sandwich…or great autorotation…tough to tell…


#218

Some kind of “land right now” failure:

Transmission or engine problems is my guess. Could’ve been chips detected in gearbox.

He got confused with the pull for power settings on his flight stick? :slight_smile:

That happens when you put the USB cable in upside down*… :upside_down_face: :salute:
