EADS’s subsidiary Eurocopter was showing off its X3 compound helicopter today at the Pentagon. The company hopes to pitch the concept for the US Army’s Joint Mulit-Role/Future Vertical Lift program. While it was only on static display at the five-sided puzzle palace, it was caught on camera by EADS’s photographers when it came in to land at the building’s heliport. There is a lot of helicopter traffic in this area, I wonder if any of our local denizens noticed the difference between this and all the other choppers around here.
