Helos are very touchy, complex, tempermental machines. In 3rd world countries, with 3rd world maintenance, inspection and pilots.....I would not be willing to get on one. I have piloted helos before, but not helo rated, have friends who own them. This mechanical engineer avoids them in general. I want hthe parts of an aircraft that hold it up to be rigidly attached. A shame to lose these people. Apparently a good conservative trying to keep his family safe in an emergency.

#4/5 my answer to that is "Hell yes"! The media needs to burn up the air time and the print media need to use the ink.

somethings odd. why would all be still strapped in & pilot's hands still on wheel?? They must have known there was trouble and would have tried to exit in only 16 ft of water. hmmm, an explosion on board, already dead?? doesn't make sense.

Photo shows helicopter body upside down. This was a sudden crash from low altitude, I’d say.

#7, probably hit with a high sink rate, drove all skulls down on spines, or fractured spines, instant paralysis and death by drowning, no more body motion possible. A helo can "glide down" using the rotor blades like the wings of a maple seed, letting the air spin them as the helo falls. At the last few seconds, the pilot switches the pitch on the rotor, turning the stored rotational energy of the blades into a few seconds lift, getting a soft landing. This is called autorotation, and is a trained response. I have watched pilots practicing it at the airport in training, in the right circumstances, with a skilled pilot, it does work. However, there is a "death zone", a low altitude area where there is not enough height to give the pilot time to convert to autorotation mode, spin up the blades fast enough to stop the high sink rate. If an engine fails in this low altitude 'death zone', there is nothing that can be done, the helo drops, HARD. A friend was a helo air ambulance nurse and had this happen. He managed to live, just barely, as a quadraplegic. If he had been in the water, paralyzed as he was, he would have drowned, like they probably did.

Jeffrey Epstein dead: William Barr ‘appalled’ over pedophile’s apparent suicide, FBI probing 14 replies
Posted by FlyRight 8/10/2019 6:30:14 PM Post Reply
US Attorney General William Barr said he’s “appalled” that Jeffrey Epstein was able to kill himself while in federal custody, as the FBI announced Saturday that it would be probing the convicted pedophile’s death. “Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered,” Barr said. “In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death,” Barr added. The stunning developments come a day after a trove of newly unsealed documents implicated a number of powerful people in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring.

The woman who says she was just 15 when pedophile Jeffrey Epstein forcibly raped her asked a Manhattan court on Thursday to make Epstein reveal the identity of the woman who “recruited” her into the multi-millionaire’s alleged harem of underage women. Jennifer Araoz, who claims Epstein raped and sexually abused her in his Upper East Side mansion, says in a draft lawsuit that she was recruited for the abuse by an unknown woman outside of her Manhattan school.

For the better part of two decades starting in the late 1980s, Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump swam in the same social pool. They were neighbors in Florida. They jetted from LaGuardia to Palm Beach together. They partied at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and dined at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion. And then, in 2004, they were suddenly rivals, each angling to snag a choice Palm Beach property, an oceanfront manse called Maison de l’Amitie — the House of Friendship — that was being sold out of bankruptcy.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. has obtained intelligence that the son and potential successor of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Hamza bin Laden, is dead, according to three U.S. officials. The officials would not provide details of where or when Hamza bin Laden died, or if the U.S. played a role in his death. It is unclear if the U.S. has confirmed his death. Hamza bin Laden's last known public statement was released by al Qaeda's media arm in 2018. He threatened Saudi Arabia and called on the people of the Arabian peninsula to revolt.

De Blasio’s presidential campaign disclosed it owes his NY Fairness PAC $52,852 — a tally that includes purchases made after Hizzoner officially announced his run, his staff confirmed.

No one set out to turn the airwaves into a political weapon—much less deputize talk-radio hosts as the ideological enforcers of a major American political party. Instead the story of how the GOP establishment lost its power over the Republican message—and eventually the party itself—begins with frantic AM radio executives and a former Top 40 disc jockey, Rush Limbaugh. In the late 1980s, AM radio was desperate for new content. Listeners had migrated to FM because music sounded better on there, and advertising dollars had followed. Talk-radio formats offered a lifeline—unique programming that FM didn’t have. And on August 1, 1988, Limbaugh debuted nationally. At the outset, Limbaugh wasn’t

Connecticut residents have turned a wooded conservation area in Fairfield into their own sexual playground — with cops catching multiple people hooking up in the open space, including a pair of 80-somethings. The public escapades went down last week in the Grace Richardson Conservation Area, according to the CTPost. Six people — between the ages 62 and 85 — were arrested and charged with breach of peace and public indecency as part of a surveillance operation conducted by the Fairfield Police Department. Cops had received reports of “lewd and sexual activity” going down in the conservation area and decided to launch an investigation on Aug. 9, the CTPost reports.

Echoing the “You didn’t build that” claim made famous by former President Barack Obama, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made a pitch for a new tax while addressing the Black Church PAC's Youth Leadership Conference in Atlanta on Saturday. But, Obama’s controversial 2012 comment actually appears to have been a paraphrase of remarks Warren made a year earlier when she was running her successful campaign to unseat incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown. On Saturday, promoting her proposal for a new “wealth tax,” Democrat presidential hopeful Warren told her audience that, if any of them have built a fortune, they didn’t do it on their own, because “all of us helped” them:

To keep your home cool with central air conditioning while also optimizing energy efficiency (and therefore cost), keep the temperature at 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. The suggestion comes from Energy Star, a federal program managed jointly by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency that provides information to consumers about energy efficiency practices that not only save consumers money, but also improve air quality and protect the environment. With record-breaking heat waves becoming the norm, finding ways to beat the heat without busting your budget might seem mystifying, which is why Energy Star provided consumers with a set of energy-saving recommendations on how to best

Over the last weekend, Portland once again became a battleground for two extremist organizations: Antifa and the Proud Boys. There is still more video coming out, but so far, Antifa is proving to be just as vicious and demented as ever. The last time Antifa organized in Portland, journalist Andy Ngo was the only person who was attacked, but the more recent rally proved to be far more violent. Enough is enough: it’s time to designate Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. Make no mistake, the Proud Boys are a hateful, neo-fascist group.
