Sunday morning. All the time in the world to have sume fun with the computer. And let's see what's on TV. No Adam West today. Not even William Shatner. It's Airwolf. Ok, why not? The Bell Triple Two[^] always was a sight.

Just in time to see Airwolf saving a civilian Huey from another Vietnam style Huey. Boom, splash one bad Huey. But the good Huey went into a dive and both pilots were desperately pulling back the cyclic sticks and ignoring the collective control entirely.

Guys, you do know what kind of aircraft you are flying? Pulling back the stick may work with an airplane, with a whirlybird you are in for a stunt of which I'm not sure a huey would even survive.

So what would happen? The helicopter would do a backflip, Salto Mortale backwards, and I'm quite certain that a Huey's semirigid rotor head was not constructed to deal with the forces that come into play when flying upside down. What an impressive stunt, if they had really tried that and the stuntmen had survived it.

There is a reason why there are not many pilots around who have the training and the license to do such things: Flying Bulls Bo-105 @ TANNKOSH 2011 - YouTube[^]

This one makes it actually look as if it was slow and easy. Smile | :)
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
