...poor animals...

...and I don't mean the bird (he never knew what hit him)
...I mean those poor animals that are sucking on fumes in the back of that door-less,
flying museum-piece, as they go off somewhere they probably would rather not go!!

Fly Safely!!!

Now that I look at it, maybe they're going skydiving?
In which case it probably IS somewhere they want to go!
Watch out for that light-pole!!

Am I alone in thinking the area aound what was once a bird looks a bit doctored?

And as for the people in the back - not my idea of a good time: launching myself out of a helicopter towards it's tail rotor! Certainly wouldn't go first anyway...

The cloud shapes are consistent so I think no doctoring - it looks rather like a fine, er, mist of blood....

The helicopter is a Mi-17 which is an excellent machine. Have been shown one and its capabilities by a ex military pilot. Very good aircraft and there is no problem parachuting from one. They are used all the time for this.
