At the 0:56 mark he's still got the remove-before-flight tags on :-(
At the 1:00 mark they're off, so it's not the same video :-(

Or maybe the video was edited.

Circa 1968 I watched a AH-1 Cobra perform a loop including going inverted at the top. This was at El Toro MCAS. Maybe it was flight testing, certainly not part of an airshow. No one since has believed me but I know what I saw.

In this video I was looking more at the HU-16 Albatross and the rows of AN-2 Colts in the background. I sure do like hearing the turbines at start-up.

All the markers match, the chopper is the same, the location is the same, the background a/c are the same, video was edited for time to remove a few preflight steps. Advantage, Comrade.
