Mad flying display.

I thought the Army Lynx was the only helicopter that could do that, due to the solid titanium rotor head? Clearly not

Nah, all Lynx have the same rotor configuration! The Army Lynx is more liable to carry out loops and rolls due to its internals!! The RN Lynx has more 'boxes' inside to rattle about and affect the C of G.

Also the Bolkow 105 is a more than competent aerobatic helicopter, capable of looping da loop and defying the ground!!!

Waspie, like this, looks like an MBB105 to me

Saw this on the NAS Key West airshow FB page and it rang a bell!

Surely only a/c with a rigid rotor head can do this though?

Re the rigid rotor head. So did I.

Maybe a Boffin will answer that one.

I know helo's with rigid rotors are normally designed for full aerobatics but that isn't to say articulated or semi-articulated rotor head can't do the odd stunt. (Maybe they never told the pilots!!!!!!!!!):angel8:
