Why helicopter pilot's don't like fixed wingers

Aw come on Aaron, I like fix wingers. I used to be one. That's why SSH didn't want me in their acadamy.

 

Seriously, the Spitfire pilot more than likely couldn't see the bird in front of him. I bet he thought something was wrong when his bird started shaking. But alas, that's what insurance is for.

 

I like planes, and I like those who fly planes. Those who don't like those who fly planes should re-think why they don't like those who fly planes. Planes good. Planes serve a purpose. Planes make good shade on hot sunny day at Oshkosh. Planes also cheaper to fly.:)

 

I go now.

 

Later.

especially them ole WWII Birds, my favorite is the P38 G, H, & J models talk about a war horse, they saw all fronts of the battle fields and never got the real credit they deserve.

My most favorite WWII bird is the P-47 C & D. Ya they weren't/aren't much to look at, but they could take a beating and return the favor! (8 .50 cal maching guns will do that :D). And for the record I don't dislike fixed wing pilots and I am sure most helo pilot's don't either.

Would that be considered an "Air War"?

 

Bad joke...bad bad joke.

 

Sorry,

Pretty sure that is not a Spitfire as it's got a turbine engine... but it is a sweet airplane... That accident should never have happened as tailwheel drivers are never supposed to taxi like that. You're supposed to taxi in a zig zag motion so you can see over the nose. I just hang my head out the window on the Piper Cub...

 

Seems like this is also at an airshow or fly in as well and those things usually have marshals that guide aircraft to their parking spots. At least that is how it is at Oshkosh and all of the other fly in's I have been to.

 

Off topic but is anyone going to Oshkosh this year?

I like fixed wing pilots that keep 2500 AGL.....I've been known to get a bit upset when I run into them at 500 AGL.

I had a couple fly right over me this morning. The pattern was quiet full with everybody and their mother flying. One on takeoff, one entering the runway, and one on final, with another on base and two others on downwing and one turning crosswind. Let's see, that's seven so far, Oh yeah, three on the taxiways and one coming off the ramp. Now where was that twelfth one? Oh yeah, he was the one doing ground loops on 27.:P

 

Really, the pattern was like a daisey chain.

 

Got to land in a confined area. That increased the pucker factor a little.

 

Hey Aaron, Mike let me get inside the Skycrane. I'll send ya a pic.

 

Later.
