No, the helicopter isn’t actually floating, you loon.
You know that queasy feeling you get in your stomach when the pilot of a large passenger plane has to make a rough landing in bad weather? Just try and imagine what this Royal Danish Air Force pilot was feeling while trying to land a Seahawk MH-60R helicopter on a boat while both were being tossed around in a North…
A Greek AH-64 Apache attack helicopter crashed into the sea yesterday, and miraculously the two crew members inside survived without a single injury, the AP reports. But I can’t see how that’s possible after it did a whirling front flip right into the water.
If you thought Burning Man was just a steampunk renaissance fair for filthy hippies, like I did, you too may be surprised to learn that this $10 million helicopter is doing taxi service for (rich) people who want to go to the party.
On Saturday, Sheriff’s Deputies in Osceola County, Florida (of course) saw a helicopter buzz over route U.S. 192 low enough to nearly hit some street lamps. The cops didn’t take kindly to this, figured out where the helicopter was registered, went there and waited for it to land.
Man, and I thought a Chinook carrying a Black Hawk was impressive! One of our readers didn’t though, and sent us this picture to say we’d undersold the Chinook’s pulling power.
Does Captain America work at the Texas Department Of Public Safety or what? Probably, and here’s some solid evidence.
Now that Mercedes-Benz has their own version of the Airbus H145 helicopter and Arrow 460-Granturismo power yacht, that convertible S-Class kind of looks like a puny dinghy.
Think your job sucks? Think again.
QUICK! You’re flying shotgun in a helicopter, and the engine goes out. Also, the pilot you hired for the day is dead, for some reason. Don’t worry about why. Doesn’t matter. You need to land the helicopter, now. Stop praying and watch this video.
As the U.K.’s Royal Navy and Royal Air Force continue handing off search and rescue operations to private firms, they’re paring down their fleets of Sea King helicopters. Why buy a nice, running car when you could put a six-ton derelict helicopter on your lawn?
The “Red Bull Air Force” is a real thing. Specifically; a team of lunatic aerial stunt athletes with an unlimited budget. Want to watch them try and outdo each other?
Between the A-Team, Miami Vice and Knight Rider, the 1980s was a classic era in television for people who love cool machines. But the short-lived Airwolf was my favorite 80s show of all because it featured a secret “stealth” and “supersonic” helicopter based on the Bell 222. Now, 30 years after the show was on the…
The Pope, AKA Pope Francis, AKA “Cool Pope,” is a heavenly man. But since he’s visiting New York, he will officially make travel here a living hell. Thankfully, a helicopter service in New York will raise all of our cross-town travels a little closer to God, as they’re offering the low-low rate of $95 just to go from…
Holden Racing Team’s James Courtney was sidelined from this weekend’s activities at Sydney Motorsports Park from being hit in the ribs with a metal wall before the second practice session. Air from the blades of a low flying Navy helicopter picked up the garage dividers and tossed them like toys in the pits.
If pointing a laser at an aircraft is a bad idea (trust me, it is a very bad idea) then pointing a laser at a police air unit is basically like calling ahead to make yourself a reservation in jail. This video shows three individuals in Vaughan, Ontario doing exactly that. If you’re in the mood for some justice porn…
In films like Apocalypse Now and Black Hawk Down, helicopters fill the screen and sky like locusts. But seeing dozens of private helicopters – flown by civilians – in perfect formation is as rare as it is impressive, and earlier this summer, 25 Robinson helicopters joined up over Russia in a successful attempt to set…
Unwilling to rest on the laurels of his various skydiving records, Felix Baumgartner has once again taken to the sky, albeit this time much closer to Earth. His newest flavor of insanity is chasing a drift car around a Polish air base in an acrobatic helicopter, which looks like a mashup between Mission: Impossible…
Los Angeles finally received some rainfall over the weekend, but not enough to delay tonight’s doubleheader at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. This evening, America’s favorite pastime will be brought to fans by the 712 turboshaft horsepower of the City of Anaheim’s Police Department helicopter, an American Eurocopter AS350.
