A stroll down memory lane - I started this group, rec.aviation.rotorcraftnearly 25 years ago by Paul Papasavas
I just happen to stumble upon this group. I started this back in the mid 90s. We had to do a call for votes and have people out there vote to allow this group to come into existence. Hard to believe it's still in existence with lots of people using it. Glad to see it still around. Happy flying...

Miami TV news helicopter crashes by [email protected]
The reason we that he tried to do a loop on the helipad had asked the other helicopter near by to take a video. That's the real reason, he made a mistake, tail boom strike or the helicopter broke. But the truth is he tried to perform a stunt.
