Everest Landing - Might Not Have Happened At All.


Recommended Posts

I like ####'s plan. Slow but sure.

I was just gonna push the **** thing out of the back of a Herc over the peak and try to have the first bounce counted as a landing.

Pretty sure that we can buy a suitable R44 cheap from the Surete du Quebec.

That is if Biggles doesn't buy it to use to commute home to the new dog and digs.

Who cares what was in or out of the machine the thing landed up there. Its a great feat. Eurocopter was the first to do it and thats all there is to it, Like the Russians beating the americians into space.

Now the americans will do it but with seat cushions in the space craft.

-          “Time to climb” records to the heights of 3,000, 6,000 and 9,000 meters performed on April 14th, 2005 in respectively 2 minutes 21 seconds, 5 minutes 6 seconds and 9 minutes 26 seconds. These records smash the previous ones held by an Ecureuil/AStar AS350 B1 with respectively 2 minutes 59 seconds, 6 minutes 55 seconds and 13 minutes 52 seconds,

 

 

 

They don't tell you they are absolute records in their weight category. Otherwise why would the Federation Aeronautique International list these records?

It is all in how you present the facts!!

 

Also that is for a 214A wich has an engine rated at 280 SHP less than the 214B. I wonder what the B could do?
