XS650: XStraordinary   Leave a comment


What’s an Apache AH-64 worth? Around US$30 million – give or take a few thousand XS2-GS650/750s?

‘Falling Through’ on ‘Return to Target.’ Pretty dumb really. A helo fly-by at high altitude-in thin atmosphere. Was that a 1st Cav emblem I saw? There are old pilots and bold pilots but no old, bold pilots.

Officially no one was killed. However that bloke, at the end, running to the right, looks like he has other things on his mind than failed burger flippers. Maybe that bloke by the 44 gallon drum you see in the rh corner during the approach?

The pilot will probably get promoted sideways. To a desk. The cameraman? Will probably go to jail.
