A Conversation for Helicopters

More than a guillotine.

Post 1


The author of this interesting article mentioned:
"the tail rotor counteracts any turning motion that the main rotor induces in the body of the aircraft."

Yet, this tail rotor can chop off heads.

And it was back in the 70's when we fly from London to attend the French Grand Prix, and on board the helicopter on which I was a passenger was soon to be the wife of a famous Welsh actor.

We landed and the four or five passengers got out, and this lovely woman was walking towards the tail rotor and so I rush and pushed her away. And so this was the first time, the only time, I have ever saved a persons life.

So I feel this exVietnam pilot should have warned us about the dangers of the tail rotor!
