That's some fine police tape-work there, Lou.

Obviously I would get in trouble for walking up to the dome and touching it behind the tape, but am I the only person tempted to bring out a ladder and push the blades around while making helicopter noises?

A helicopter designed in the 1940s and manufactured no later than 1974? Yeah, no way I'm stepping foot in that thing. Helicopters are hugely complex machines that barely work when brand new, one older than I am is an accident waiting to happen every time it takes off. I'd much rather fly in a WW2 airplane than even the newest example of a Bell 47.

"Went to get coffee, and my dad was like, you got to go around the neighborhood because a helicopter is in the middle of the street, and I was like oh my gosh!" said Sheree Hopper.


.
I read that in Dennis Hopper's voice.

I'm surprised that he was able to make a landing.  That's an older postwar neighborhood with small lot sizes and narrow streets, and as an older neighborhood the trees are larger.

I'm a little surprised he didn't aim for a park or the elementary school grounds.

I've heard that before from military heli guys;that maintenance can be a nightmare. Engines gone? You dead. At least you can glide a plane somewhat.

It does look a little MASHed from the hard landing.

The wife and I have been to several tourist areas where helicopter and/or light plane rides have been offered. After a short discussion about helicopters in general and local air traffic density, we have always opted not to partake.

What the fark?

Either it's a mini chopper with like a 125 single, or a big thumper 650

Either way, making a single chopper, that's thinking outside the box
