Yeah but this wouldn't work with my 47 here in the UK, cos the first time it rained the passengers would get wet?
I'll get my coat.

I don't think people on here are taking this very seriously. Don't you find it annoying when you try to lift into the hover and there are two naked women in the way? I know I do.

It's the Bell Bounce that puts me off.

S92 Takeoff, North Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland.

Taken by the jumpseat (FlightSafety International) pilot during the intermediate phase of the takeoff profile from one of the drill ships to the North of Hibernia.

Cougar Helicopters, January 2010.

Yes, my neighbour is a Boeing 777 and A340 pilot for Cathay and that picture scares the crap out of him. Fixed wing crews have a hard time adjusting to the thought of an aircraft of any type being able to climb with a nose down attitude.

A few years ago ... quite a few actually ... I sat in the cockpit of a piston twin and on take off I could not get the hang of the climb attitude. I thought that we should run out of speed at any moment. Got professional help since then ... have a plank ticket now.

Looks like a 200 fpm rate of descent, to me

Yes, that's why we call it "drop-down" in that phase of the takeoff. Once the airspeed gets you into the better side of the power curve, "Bob's your Uncle"
