True... JSF was the last project I was working on when I retired from the AF. If 911 hadn't thrown a monkey wrench into things I'd probably still be working on it.

Planes are like dragsters and rotaries are like AC cars. Built for different things. But I agree with Rob, a good pilot makes a world of a difference

It was an attempt to do a full landing but the earth was repelling the vibrations...
Chris and I have been over this before... Ten thousand loose parts flying in close formation is not an aircraft...

Actually, Having worked on helicopters as a medic and flying on them to work all the time, I'm simply amazed what they can do in the hands of a competent and skilled pilot...

Fixed for you... I took the controls of a Bocal <<, not sure of the spelling... for close to an hour one time... level straight flight at the time. i was the last one left on a crew change and they couldnt carry everyone on the big bird, so they sent this thing out... For all I know it was on autopilot, and I was just mimicking the AP... :iono:

:laugh: I'll have to tell you the story of how we'd make midshipman (officer candiates) think they are flying the helo with the cusor on the Nav screen...

:laugh:

or were you the one who had to push scaredy-cat Chris out? :laugh:

Yes... and no.... :mad0260:
