Peaceful Shot Of MV-22 Osprey Overlooking The Sun On Top A Mountain

The US Marines says this photo shows a MV-22B Osprey preparing to take off on top of a mountain in New Mexico. I think the picture is fantastic, the rear shot makes it look like the Osprey is being contemplative and its rotors are splitting the Sun at the perfect angle. Everything almost looks peaceful.


This Might Be The Perfect Photo Of A Sea Hawk Helicopter

This photo of a HH-60H Sea Hawk Navy helicopter, taken on April 12, is virtually flawless. The whole scene is like a well executed model diorama: the sea surface like broken sheet glass; the Sea Hawk hovering, still on its rope ladder stand; and those two tiny navy technicians clinging on for dear life.


Spectacular Night Photos Of The New Puma Helicopter 

These night photos of an AF Puma Mk2 helicopter being loaded onto a C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft, illuminated by runway lights at Brize Norton, the largest station of the Royal Air Force, are simply too good to handle.


It Was A Dark And Stormy Night (For This Anti-Piracy Dolphin)

In this spectacular and dramatic long-exposure night shot you can see a Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin helicopter — Dolphin, to its friends — being towed into its hangar aboard Ventôse, a light monitoring frigate of the French Marine Nationale.


'Uber For Helicopters' Is Gross, Absurd, And I Want To Use It Every Day

Helicopter rides are fun and fast; and ridesharing apps are booming. These are the core ideas behind Gotham Air, a helicopter rideshare service that promises to get you from helipad to airport in six minutes. Do you need it? Definitely not. Is it amazing? We tried it — and yes, it absolutely is.


This Helicopter Crash Is Terrifying Because Of The Noise

Listen to this video of a helicopter ditching into the sea while trying to land on the research vessel Viking Vision. I say listen, because you can’t see much but you can hear all the scary noises — the screaming engine sound and the water getting into the helicopter. It feels even more terrifying than seeing it.


How Insane Helicopter Pilots Harvest Your Christmas Tree At Mad Speeds

Once again, it’s time buy dead trees. Once again, we should marvel at the way they harvest them: Using insane helicopters pilots flying at full speed, ferrying trees from one side of a hill to where the trucks are. It’s crazy.


Why You Shouldn't Shine Lasers At Police Aircraft (You Get Hunted Down)

When I was a kid, I had a small laser pointer. It chowed down on single cell batteries and did little more than annoy my pets. Now, modern laser pointers, such as the Wicked Lasers that exist for whatever reason, can burn through stuff and shoot a beam all the way into space. Sure, that sounds pretty cool but all of this can be bad news for helicopter pilots.


Monster Machines: This Could Be The Future Of Military Helicopters (No, Really)

The race to build ever-faster helicopters has seen some rather, um, unique designs take flight in recent years, but nothing quite like this Frankensteined airship from the AVX Aircraft Company. And although it may look strange, this concept chopper could soon be setting some new airspeed records.


Using A Helicopter To Trim Trees Next To A Power Line Looks Insane

Watch this helicopter pilot trim trees with a giant 10-blade saw right by a power line. Apparently, it is the only practical way to cut back vegetation in isolated, hard-to-access locations. Amazing skills and courage.
