It's likethe F14A and the Pratt & Whitney TF30 engine-but worse!
give me some ducktape and she'll run like new
Instead of blabbering in some foreign language, I think they should have given the order to stop the rotor.
Perhaps to you it is foreign, but to the Russians involved the English you blabber is also foreign.
Plus the people filming it were probably reporters, and last I checked reporters dont have the authority to give military orders
And they probably did stop the rotor... It just takes alot of time for it to wind down... yeesh :roll:
The incident occurred sometimes between 2004 or 2005. The reason why the chopper went for a drink for the first time was a servo malfunction at the collective actuator. That same servo malfunction led to the loss of the vehicle, as the servo malfunction lead to the total loss of control of the vehicle, which you're seeing when the chopper takes her final drink. The co-pilot died by drowning.
There's a full accident mishap article, but I have no idea how to access it.
There is some real good ball-busting goin' on here lately.
It's not often I do that, however, in this case I felt it was appropriate for a post that showed no thought or consideration for the circumstances. Not to mention the xenophobia being displayed against those who don't speak English. It reminds of those who think they can make foreigners understand them by shouting and gesticulating loudly or that if they can't speak English they must be dumb. :bang: :bang: :bang: :angry:
It happened to me at 7 - returned to Britain with my parents and on attending my first British school was immediately put to the back of the class by the headmaster who thought as I spoke Afrikaans as my first language I must be dumb. You don't learn a lot in class when they insist you play with plasticine instead of doing classwork. What they (teachers) didn't realise was that though I might not speak English well, I could understand it as well as any kid my age.
I used to take great delight in calling them ignorant (in Afrikaans) when they thought they could discuss me (in English) me as if I didn't exist. I had great pleasure in telling my teacher, in English, at the end of that year that I looked forward to moving to a new school were the staff knew how to teach and didn't automatically assume someone was dumb if they had a different accent ot language.
I've seen this many times since in this country, europe and the USofA and it always makes me both angry and pity the idiots that do it. I was only at that school one year but it tought me to value other folk for what they are. Rant over! :grin:
It's a plane, It's a boat!, It's.....a sub/chopper?
it gives new meaning to the phrase 'make like a boat'
