Caption Contest!

Somebody once defined helicopter flying as "Hours and hours of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror."

You could define helicopter *combat* flying as "A couple of minutes of aggravation, agitation and autogyration punctuated by a whole bunch of cussing -- before, during and after the impact."

Heh. V29 demonstrating the proper blend of nonchalance, insouciance and "Send me in *again*, Coach" attitude. I taught him well...

Go for it!

I was practicing hiding a bird in a bush. Then I had to do a little tree trimming to make it fit. One thing led to another.

You know they just don’t make them like they use to.

Last time I let Tuttle take my bird out.

1. Why no Sir, i was just disguising it as an Iraqi model.

2. Tuttle's new mechanic ponders the tactical value of the ‘Tuttle - The Other Left’ manoeuvre.

Not a caption, but is anyone else getting a Ferris Bueller standing in front of Cameron's dad's Ferrari feel on this one?

The end result of Tuttle's infamous words of "Ya'll Watch this...."

This is me, with "Double Nuts", before we began the Phase "D" Pre-Post Cruise inspection.

We gave the Infantry riders a couple cases of beer, and they removed the panels for us.

Nice Guys!

V29 standing in front of the "NOTAR" (NO TAil Rotor) technology demonstrator... or, in this case, the earlier NOTA (NO TAil) demonstrator.

Just one unsuccessful bump on the road to this.

No sir, I did not take that bird on an unauthorized combat mission, that's just a good Friday night on the town.

Tuttle - How many times do I hafta tell you knuckleheads? NO BUZZING OVER THE MOAT!

"My first flight instructor told me 'The record for low flight can't be beaten, only tied' and I just wanted to see for myself if he was right."
