3 Chinooks over London now
For improved pilot survivability the Ka-50 is fitted with a NPP Zvezda K-37-800 ejection seat, which is a rare feature for a helicopter. Before the rocket in the ejection seat kicks in, rotor blades are blown away by explosive charges in the rotor disc and the canopy is similarly jettisoned.Posted 9 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber

Yeah, watching the Sea King land at the top of Castle Crag descent to pick up my broken mate was a good one. Mountain Rescue said they always liked to use the whole rescue package of flares and watching big yellow helicopters land in impossible spaces.Posted 9 years ago
