I Want This Helicopter!

Rate this post

UPDATE:

Sorry, folks. Thanks to a tip from FOTM co-founder Steve, I just discovered that this is NOT an American helicopter. It’s a specially painted Mi-24 Hind helicopter in the Hungarian Air Force, which was not intended to be used in military operations and thus carried no armaments. It is strictly used for display in air shows, etc. [Source: Snopes]
I still think it’s awesome!
