Seems this area hasn't been touched in awhile and the group is getting stale. Well, let me stir the pot and see who is still aboard. My very first feeling of emergency I think, occured when my instructor said, "YOU HAVE IT", but he was also quick to relieve me of the anxiety and settled the...

Is this chopper about to crash? by Trentus
It would appear that the majority in aus.aviation seem to think this shot http://www.thedamnedestthing.com/page15.html was moments from impact, but then they fly the wrong type of aircraft in that newsgroup, so what would they know. If not how is it still in the air at that angle? My "hunch" is...

JAG Helicopter Video, Rinke Aerospace, Spy Photos, JAG Helicopter, Helicopter, Black Ops by Dennis Chitwood
I Have Just seen the JAG video and it is real! I hope Joe will forgive me for posting negative comments that were not based on factual information.

TRUTH OF THE MINI-500 TURBINE CONVERSION by Dennis Chitwood
I've just read, with great dismay and disbelief, information which Rick Stitt and his partner, Andreas, wrote with regards to me. I'd like to ask...what did I ever do to them to deserve such lies except give him $22,000 of hard earned cash, a year and a half of my own sweat, and refusing to lower...
