Some are smooth and have curb appeal
When are you guys getting the T2?
When the french stop crushing the landing gear out west.
You didn't hear that from me.
Doesn't really matter, it was strictly made to break a record and dick around with some concepts. It was never intended to be a production model.
im guessing you have to shut the lot off, cant stop just the props because they are the "tail rotors", and who wants to climb in or out with a pair of 15' woodchippers next to you?
this looks a lot of fun too
The province is broke so we're not holding our breath. Another 100 HP would certainly help though. The drivetrain is different from the current B3, B4 so there wouldn't be any commonality. I'm wondering what sort of retirement life is on the various spinning bits up top. The star has a shorter retirement life on the B4 than the B2 because of the increased gross weight.
Haven't had a star get to 1,000hours yet on a B4:huh. The bushings on the end of the star arms suffer bonding failures.
Yeah they're asking a lot from that head, lots has changed since the straight B :eek1
Guess you've heard that the CCG is in the market for new hardware, going to be interesting to see what they end up getting...Stay tuned.
Same with the 145 T2 that's coming out, I hope they do some serious upgrades or redesigns of the main trans.
Some more of the 2009 Fairford (UK) Airshow
Some pictures of the 2009 MCAS Miramar Airhow (This weekend is the 2012 edition. Unfortunately I'm not there.)
Can anyone identify the brand of helicopter in the picture? Is it possible for the 2 gorgeous girls on the ground to spray at the helo? Won't the downwash wet their singlets and skimpy shorts instead before reaching the helo? Is the helo still in ground effect?
Would you allow this to happen to you if you're the pilot?
Oh hell yes!
Yes. All day. And then drinks and BBQ. Maybe some dancing too.
I was a Crew Chief/Natops Instuctor/Avionics Tech on the CH-53E and the MH-53E. I'm retired now, miss it deeply
Here's a little CH-53E Crew Chief love for you:
