Totally correct ... see Rotorheads thread on retreating blade stall.
Just have to read Code7700 (Code 7700) stories to see that being in the forces does not automatically make you a safe operator.

Somewhere out there is a war movie where a heroic low pass is made and a soldier is killed by the passing aircraft


After being informed what heís done the pilot deliberately flies into the ground


Anyone recognize this tale ?


I canít remember the name of it

I'm not saying that such recklessness could not occur in the U.S.; however, being that the aircraft was of Venezuelan registry, I doubt that the FAA had any authority or input on this display of aeronautical idiocy.
