As luck might have it, and I get to work on a mold for those blades, your wish may be my command. I have a single wood asymmetrical foil 580mm blade (600 finished) which will prototype a blade similar to the design. I can't describe the details of the blade other than they will be tested and proven before any kind of production may be offered. Hand made ones will be offered when funds allow)

All this from back flips, wheeeee, no, that was cool.

We had a British Lynx land here on the island about twenty years ago. They brought their Admiral off a ship to have lunch at the "Green Turtle Club".
I remember it sitting with engines running for quite a while as one of the crew told us they dare not shut down because everything was 240 volt.
On his return trip to collect the Admiral again, the pilot knew we were waiting and watching and he made a low fast fly-by with a climb and stall-turn. It was quite impressive!
The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

The award for biggest balls has to go to the first pilot to ever loop a helicopter though

award for biggest balls
the shear mass of his nuts is probably what carried him through the loop.

I thought the Chinook was the fastest? something to do with the twin rotors....pilots I knew a while back that flew the blackhawk said they had problems keeping up with them when flying escorts...was this fact or fiction?
showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I don't-no

but I did talk to a Blackhawk pilot once at our flying field, I asked him what was the maximum pitch used in the Blackhawk, he told me he didn't know, he then asked me as he smiled>> "does 30 sound right",, I told him>> "I didn't know, mine only uses 11" LOL

The Chinook is the fastest US Army helicopter, but it's no speed record holder.E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

100% fact!

I flew "green" missions on a regular basis in Afghanistan ( 1 chinook and 1 Blackhawk). Unless they were loaded down with some crazy kicker pallets I would constantly be at my maximum
Continuous torque limit to just stay within 5 rotor disks. So pulling 97-98% Q. All day long.

Dude my Blackhawk engine the GE701d/cc is right around 1600 SHP. One chinook is engine is around
5000SHP

I will be flying these things for about 6 more months, if anyone has army aviation questions or Blackhawk specific. Ask away.
Getting out of the Army and moving to Alaska soon. Take advantage love to answer questions.

So yes. Chinook is incredibly hard to keep up with. I always flew as chalk1 anytime I did a green mission. Number one because I could set the speed number two so I could land first before they brought the smack down of all
Dust clouds and number 3 because when they go slow down their fuselage doesn't really change pitch like how a Blackhawk does a woa boy. So another words they would have a tendancy to slow way down and you would pick up On it late and almost slam into them.

So I always flew lead
Dropping Tones!
