That was the new Eurocopter. But Sikorsky's X2 made its maiden flight in 2008.



I seem to recall Vietnam-era choppers based on similar ideas.

it's not exactly a new concept.


A side note. The Pitcairn Autogiro was developed and built in Willowgrove PA. The hanger I use to Drill in at the Willowgrove navel air station was the original Pitcairn hanger were they built them.

Now that was a cool chopper. Jet powered blades and fast. Really a shame it was cancelled. Probably still a more reliable and safer system than the Osprey although not quite as fast.

I don't care, I'll be hiding in my basement until this thread disappears.
