lol, i watched it through and enjoyed it. little cheesy in some parts, if only i were a year or two younger i would have really liked it. some good lines though, "you can back me some if you want" and some really cool flight sequences in fast forward. i like the theme song and the suped up helo. good find gunner.

Airwolf was cool, Ya I know the whole plot was pretty far fetched, but it's still fun to watch.

 

If you're into the Airwolf thing, they have a really nice 1/48 diecast model of it out now. Girlfriend gave me one for Christmas, made by Aoshima, can find them on ebay.

Good post, thanks....

 

When I was in the Robinson Safety Course earlier this month Ernest Borgnine interrupted our class. Got to shake his hand and say hi then he was out of there.... Was an interesting interruption.

 

Your kidding right? What would he be doing there? He's got to be too old to be flying helicopters.

Nope, not kidding at all. Frank was showing him around. Met Him and his wife. No idea why he was there, but your never too old to fly right??? At least that's what I'm telling myself, I don't ever want to be too old...

At some point as we all get older our reaction time slows below a level I believe would be safe in helicopters (at least anything coming out of Robinson). I can't imagine my dad in his 70s trying to fly a 22 these days. yet he has 1000s of hours and owned a flight school outside of Atlanta in the early 70s. Ernest has got to be older than my father so I would be very suprised to see him buy a 22 or 44 for himself to fly. Now fixed wing is a different story. Loose an engine in a cessna and you have all day to react (been there done that). Either way very cool that you met him. Too bad he did not fly there in the "Lady" :D , you might have been able to get a new perspective in retreating blade stalls ;) as Gunner mentioned.
