More Sublime Apache Helicopter Gunship Footage - PS : Please Support The Bravest Man In The Alt Media Today, David Seaman
PS : For of you who didn't already know, it was German aviation engineers who developed the world's very first viable helicopter.
As a matter of fact, it was the German aviation pioneer Hanna Reitsch - a sort of Amelia Earhart for Deutchsland - who was the very first human to fly a helicopter INDOORS, in Berlin in 1938.
I am not making this up - go check for yourselves.
The reason you have probably never heard of Hanna Reitsch, is that she was Hitler's favorite (female) pilot, she was an aviation genius, particularly in glider flight.
As a matter of fact, the successful German commando raid on the most fortified military installation on Planet Earth - Fort Eben Emael - on May 10th 1940, was accomplished as a result of two significant military technologies known only to the Germans at that time : the military glider, and the shaped charge.
And it was a woman - a LADY FFS ! - who convinced Hitler to go with the glider strategy, that effectively brought the "funny war" to a screeching halt and resulted in a very humiliating defeat for the British and French at Dunkerk just two weeks later.
Hitler's Hanna Reitsch-inspired glider invasion plan involved the usage of 10 military gliders carrying about 80 German commandos. With their never -before-seen shaped charges (imagine an upside down Chinese wok so heavy it took two men to carry it and place it atop the 14-inch thick iron turrets housing Eben Emael's big guns), and with their never-before-seen gliders that enabled them to arrive undetected in the night, the Germans were able to capture the hugest fort in the world - and the 2400 or so men within - in a matter of mere hours.
For those of you reading this right now who saw "Saving Private Ryan" : Question : Remember all the gliders that appeared in the beginning of the taking of the Normandy beaches?
Well, by the time WW2 was over, the USA had produced close to 14,000 gliders very similar in design to the ones used at Eben Emael.
What is important to remember, however, is that the "Allies" knew absolutely zilch about gliders. Or helicopters for that matter.
It took a friggin German Fraulein aviation enthusiast to invent the military glider, and be First ! to fly a German helicopter - indoors for the Love of Allah !
