Always amazing to see how he was willing to do it with no extra altitude. How the hell did that bird even get off the ground with a pilot whose nectarines are the size of weather balloons?

BALLS OF GRANITE!!! Jesus man that's some stones.
At about two hundred feet I put the helicopter in a dive and picked up airspeed to approximately 120 miles per hour; by this time at the bottom of the loop we were only twenty or thirty feet above the ground. Then the ordeal of raising the pitch stick, applying more power, gradually easing back on the azimuth stick more and more until as you look over backward and see the horizon and ground as the helicopter is now upside down in reference to the ground. Just before going over I backed off on power and pitch and by all means didn't allow the rotor RPM to exceed it's red line. Gingerly continuing to hold back on the azimuth stick allowed us to begin our descent down to the landmark from which we started. As we were coming down, we felt a thump or thud which shook the helicopter. This thump or thud was rewarding in that it signified our loop was next to perfect in that we reentered our prop or blade wash

if it ain't broke, break it.

WOW nothing like safety altitude but made for great footage.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

Watching a HD network channel last night and Belly of the Beast did a segment on the RedBull heli. Chuck Aaron stated that any other heli that tried that would chop the tail off in flight. So much for that
