    1. Any idea why that shadow or puddle or whatever it is seems to overlay their legs?

    2. I call shoop, though quite a good one. Falls down with shadows being odd and the blokes not being reflected. And the pixels

    6. once you lose the engines and gearbox a helicopter is surprisingly light. I was part of a four man crew that lifted a twin seat trainer for a weight & balance check, even without just the engine or fuel they weigh a lot less

    9. @GorillaMunch: Thats because you aren’t looking hard enough. They’re there.

      I’ve seen this done before. Granted, there’s most likely not a powerplant in there. Just cause you think its a shoop, doesn’t make it a shoop. No matter how hard you wish it to be.

    11. @monkeybird02: a bell heuy has an empty weight of about 2500 kg so its not difficult for 15 persons to lift it when the motor is removed… but I don’t see anyone in the reflection under the heli. what I see are 2 lines on the ground running from the left skid shadow to the right skid shadow… and casually they become darker when intersect the ‘shadow’ of the heuy (shadows don’t change color on the same material). no shadows on left crew, no shadow on the right… they were lifting only the skid. maybe you’ve seen it before, or the shadow of the rotor, and we all know that what have been seen cannot be unseen. I don’t see this but I can ear the heli rumor… shoopshoopshoopshoopshoop

    12. @aleph: Word. I see what your seeing. This photo probably is a shoop. I didn’t look THAT closely at the photo before I commented. All I was saying was that I have seen this done before, and that most people automatically cry shoop when they see something that looks impossible (improbable). There IS a shadow of of rotor blades on the ground, but, you’re right, no reflection of the troops who are supposed to be carrying this thing.
