"US Army AH64 text-book lift off"
http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=9c4_1294008865

Just saw this and I can't understand what happened. If you watch it slowly, something long appears to hit the blades or fly off. Was that a blade flying off or what?

At 10 seconds, I swear I can hear someone saying "Allah Akbar" !?

Something screwy about that video...where did the rotor head go? There's at least 10 seconds missing from that video.

I could see what looked like a drone fly into it. Came in right over the cameraman and blew off in pieces to the right.

Nope, looks like a super windy day, that panel that flew in the head is the same color as the building next to the heli. Looks like a piece of sheeting from that building blew off and into the rotor head.

As for the missing rotor head, have you ever seen one explode? Very few parts at that kind of RPM

Highly Medicated for your protection......

Amazing what a $50 sheet of tin can do to a 30 million dollar helicopter. It blew a section off the roof off the building. If you look closely, you can see the entire transmission, mast,and head get yanked out. Its hanging out the port-aft of the airframe.

This one was pretty bad too, couldn't even watch more than a minute of it.
