Some governments seem to have money for demonstration teams, just not us.

We have money for free phones, families on the dole for generations, free health care for those who can't muster the motivation to get out of bed before noon, but not helicopter demo teams. The Army got rid of their Silver Eagles team in the mid seventies and kept the Golden Knight parachute team. Not a good move in my book.

Cool video.

It's a great video, and super performance on a full sized bird.

I also agree fully with the handout post. However, one heli and 6 pilots are not the same as the TBirds and Blue Angels. It's a shame we (as a country and economy) have let things get so bad that they had to stand down.

not demo team
What do you think the Thunderbirds are ?

The Apache is one of the most awsome helis on the planet BUT if i had to chose between a Demo of it vs the Thunderbirds the Thunderbirds win every time, at least they do with me !

Our test pilots Rich Lee and Mark Metzger used to fly all the demos for the Army at big air shows.

When they flew demos here at the plant...........it was damn near a 3D routine! And they did it really low! Sidewards and backwards flight........loops, rolls, stall turns and many other radical moves to prove to the Army that even with the added weight of Longbow equipment and at full mission weight........it was still a very agile aircraft!

The problem is that during real helicopter combat, 3D type agility doesn't count for crap except to get you killed faster by crashing.
