Flight’s prestigious “don’t try this at home” award

Following hot on the heels of Friday’s special “points for trying” award from the static display at the Royal International Air Tattoo, the German army has again shown its ability to impress, this time by securing the inaugural “don’t try this at home” prize.


Regular air show goers will be well used to seeing transport crews sitting on the wings of their aircraft to get an uninterrupted view of the flying display, but as illustrated here, perhaps the rotors of a BO105 helicopter are a bit less accommodating than a Boeing C-17 or Lockheed Martin C-130!
