Brand New Bell 47 Spider Still Packed in Cosmoline ---- What's It Worth? by Larry Smith
And what does it do? It looks to me like it's part of the drive train. Until I opened the original box and looked inside, it had never been opened since the 60's when the spider was manufactured by Textron in Fort Worth, Texas. The spider belongs to WNC Air Museum, which is selling it.

Cheapest place to get a helicopter license by [email protected]
Where is the cheapest place to get dual training in an R22 helicopter? I thought I found a flight school web site that advertised $150/hr, but I didn't save the link and can't find it again so I'm starting to wonder if I just dreamed it. Are there individuals with their own R22 and a CFI license...

Dubya / Kill Devil Hills irony by Bart
I'm watching the President's speech on CNN now at Kill Devil Hills. The fact that there's a _huge_ TFR surrounding the area bothers me a little. I wonder is he's really aware of how much impact he had on GA and the people trying to get in and out of there. I did notice that unlike the routine...

number of rotor blades by Rob Fonhof
Just a theoretical question that someone may be able to help with. Alot of helicopters have only two rotor blades, ie:Robinsons, Bells, etc. Others have multiples, ie:dauphins with 4, Hughes etc. If a blade is thrown on a two blade, bend over and kiss your rear bye bye. What would happen if you had...

NYPDs New 412EP by Micbloo
http://www.rockawave.com/news/2003/1024/Community/008.html Interesting that the ship is NOT in the traditional blue/white NYPD colors. And the N # is N23FH which I believe is dedicated to the 23 NYPD officers who died on 9/11. Thus "23 Fallen Heroes".
