    I bet Airwolf could have completed that maneuver with ease. Even without using the "turbos".

    Back in the day, before everyone and his brother had a cell phone or P&S camera that could take video, you could get away with crap like that. Not any more...

    Blue Thunder could have made that....and the nose is heavy as hell!!! Airwolf would have done that like a boss and included a loop in there!

    My Uncle is a Master Sgt in the Army working on Apache's. When I showed him this video he just shook his head. His comment, "They teach the pilots that they can do almost anything, the problem is that they think they can do almost anything."

    Can't believe nobody on the ground was hurt, let alone the crew. An expensive lesson...
    EVERYONE IS THERE TO SEE THE SHERPA!

    "Return to Target" or "Showing Off" maneuver?
