Didn't you see me chucking tomatoes at the chopper?:laugh:

BTW, I read something in a book of funnies the other day, from an aviation magazine. - Helicopters can't actually fly, but they are so ugly, the Earth repels them....:laugh:

Now Admin is safely on the ground, and Arch has started the quotes....

"If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter - and therefore, unsafe."

"Helicopters don't fly... they just beat the air into submission."

"If something hasn't broken on your helicopter, it's about to."

Nice one Shaun, next get yourself over to the Pocklington Gliding club website and book yourself a trial lesson - you'll never regret it.

Cheers,

Long time ago I went for a "not quite a pleasure flight" (we stopped to pick mushrooms) flight in a Gazelle. As I settled into the front seat the pilot said "Do you know what happens when the engine fails on one of these?" "No" "Yet you still go in them, how trusting". This illustrates:-
1/ The AAC's weird sense of humour
2/ How the army wastes taxpayers' money.

I've only been up in a helicopter once.
I was medivaced to hospital after loosing half my arm to a Tiger.
I was flat on my back and could not see out.
But was not really interested in the view outside anyway ......... :wacko:

The first thing I saw as I was unloaded was a camera team, who where filming at the hospital at the time.

Luck .......... :sad:
