Your Sunday Morning Rotor Noise

By request, sort of, a Bell-47:

The request was for the title sequence to MASH, which has Bell 47s (technically, H-13Cs) and no rotor noise to speak of. The introduction of helicopters to medevac wounded soldiers nearly halved the rate of casualties dying before reaching a medical facility.

We once used a bubble copter to haul shingle bolts off of a hill. I'm sure it was smaller than this though. It had an aluminum horizontal engine, just like a VW. And while we had it flying it threw a pushrod. Didn't crash but it was scary for a moment. Crazy days.

If it was smaller than the Bell, it was probably a Brantly. A VW is a pretty apt description.
Google the Brantly B2.

Seafury thanks, but it was a separate bubble with the erector set tail. The was no aerodynamic cone behind them.

There is one of those flying out of the local airport. Its been restored at least twice!

Does “restored at least twice” mean “crashed at least once”?
