  • i hate to spoil the fun here: it exist alright... first the blades from the propellor are unlocked and they go sideways, shortly after that the pilot is ejected in a normal way. sad but true.

  • The ejection seat does exist for helicopters. And how is this sad? Let's see how you feel when a guided missile is flying towards you at 700 miles per hour.

  • "Say, if there were a chance that those blades were still rotating, " Each blade is fired of separately (at the same time) they dont fly off still attached in a "fan" shape. As for anyone below... a couple of blades are the least of their problem when an 8 ton Apache lands on their house loaded with Hellfires

  • I think it's attractive, because it displays a very academic-focussed attitude. Preserving the honesty of the academic system seems to be a priority, although guilelessly curse reimbursed ads for such a service seems a flaccid response. When the concern is known by your friends who were enlivened with the results of the alliance, about this address that for the thesis writing service quality.

  • Ummm, I think that kinda might be incorrect: For improved pilot survivability the Ka-50 is fitted with a NPP Zvezda (transl. Star) K-37-800 ejection seat, which is a rare feature for a helicopter.[17] Before the rocket in the ejection seat deploys, the rotor blades are blown away by explosive charges in the rotor disc and the canopy is jettisoned. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamov_Ka-50

  • It ejects the blades separately so they wouldn't still be spinning above the pilot. The blades would just be launched away from the helicopter because of the centrifugal force. The only problem there would be that if they're flying low, the helicopter would instantly lose lift and it could slam into the ground before the pilot is ejected.
