Exploding rubber sharks are a real threat to the local ecology.

LOL…I love how everything has a specific label. It’s almost as if they expected to have to use the Shark Repellent Bat Spray.

Robin seems like the kind a guy who pushes for power.

I actually didn’t realize helicopters did this…

#106

They call it HIFR

Interesting. I knew about the air-to-air capability…I just didn’t know they would do it via a cable delivered hose. I’ve hot refueled Apaches and Chinooks before when I worked on the line…so I guess it isn’t much more of a reach to do it while hovering. My biggest regret in all those refuelings is that I never asked to sit in the cockpit of one of the Apaches. I’m soooooo stoooopid…

This Sea Stallion got a little too excited …

One thing comes to mind on that one:

Also, blade elasticity is a ■■■■■ when you’ve got a rotor diameter the size of an aircraft carrier!

Once you use slow motion…you can truly see the evilness and ridiculousness of helicopter physics…


#111

There is a great optical illusion there. :slight_smile:


#112

«Physics»?
It’s evil wizardry!


#113

Just don’t install the meshing gear backwards. Bad things happen when you do that.


#114

“Never fly something that is at risk of having a midair collision with itself…”


#115

Wasn’t there a Star Trek episode about that?


#116

#117

Guess I’m going to watch Fallout in July!

Pretty cool hes actually flying the stunts. Cant imagine the insurance rider on that though…

It is pretty insane isn’t it? I mean…that is within the realm of professional helicopter piloting. Also a testament I guess to the user friendliness of that helo. I’m pretty damn impressed though…
