    Old vid...I saw it years ago at work....


    and more than 100K's......... :ph34r:




    right now what's chewing the blades up is sand.....


    sand and bullets....



    Oh BTW....don't ever go near a 53E blade if they break open.....


    unless you like to scrub in a chemical shower with wire brushes......

    there is a small amount of radiation in each blade....

    and a gieger meter on the aircraft.......if the blade is damaged or cracked...it seeps radiation, and the gieger meter tells the pilot to land immeadiately.....



    But soon...the 53 blades will be going to the Y-chord spar....which is full composite...instead of the rolled and welded taitainium spar they have now.....




    And yes..the 53 will be going back into production.....the huge heli in that vid....I can't wait to have hydro showers again.. :(
