A pilot once told me that a helicopter was " three thousand pieces of metal fatigue surrounding an oil leak" :)

A BMW dealer in Tenn. built an airplane with an old oilhead Beemer engine. I might get in that one but a Triumph Chopper is certain stupidity!! No way =regular choppers are bad enough. Very creative. I did spend a bit of time flying in the old Sikorsky helios in the Army as a medic. This one does not look like it even flys. Does it?

I got a ride in a UH-1 in while I was stationed in Hawaii. I was blissful in my ignorance until I asked the pilot what a certain indicator light on the panel was for. He informed me it was the "chip" light. When I asked what the chip light indicated he said it indicated an unacceptale amount of metal shavings in the transmission. I swore off helicopters after that. I now think of them rather like bumblebees. They are not really supposed to be able to fly.

"There's a bunch of grateful vets that might dispute that...."

If they had flown in pre-unit twin Triumph helicopters the bunch would have been much smaller and they would have been far less grateful....

Being a Triumph owner and helicopter mechanic, I can appreciate the dangers that this helicopter provides for the pilot. Cool thing but I wouldnt fly in it
