I don't think that's a Sikorsky, I think it's a Robinson

I have a mental picture of Schwarzenegger screaming at the kids, "GET TO THE CHOPPAH!!!!!" and they're all running in panic...

Headline fail.

Came expecting the progeny of Airwolf, and got something a step removed from M*A*S*H.

What a real S-76 hard landing may look like:

Okay that's awesome. What's the scale and who makes it?

unlikely: Yeah. Robinson R44.

If it was a 2 seater, as stated in the FA, then it would be an R22. However, the helo in the pic is a four seater... so yes, R44.

Airwolf was a Bell, so there would be no relation to an S-76....unless there was helo bestiality going on.

Looks wise the S-76 looks similar to a Bell 222 which was the helicopter Airwolf was based off of.

Pay no attention to this obviously trolling comment

Yup, the news can't count seats. That said, someone wrecking a Robinson isn't exactly news.

How much you want to bet that the FAA fines the crap out of the pilot anyway?

I can hear his military theme in my head right now. I need to watch that movie again, been far too long.

Also, why would they fine a pilot for making a successful forced landing.

That caused a real stir in the gulf. The S76 is a major workhorse in the oil and gas industry.

You might be able to fit the R44 inside the S92. So there. There's your S-92 love.
