Across from where I left off yesterday is another example of VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) technology. The Canadair CL-84 Dynavert was an innovative, if little used, addition to the military.
A standard of the military first developed by Boeing and used by many countries: the Boeing Vertol. The Canadian variant is the CH-113 Labrador, used for decades in the military for search and rescue and other purposes. A tough workhorse of a helicopter that does the job.

@roentare: in some respects.ReplyDelete
@heidrun: thank you.
@italiafinlandia: I imagine there's a threshold that can't be crossed, weight wise.
@Jeanie: that's supposed to be noticed.ReplyDelete
@Gattina: it stands out.
@RedPat: it's different.
@maywyn: Labrador did a lot of that.
@Sharon: I agree.
That's a super nice rescue and search helicopter.ReplyDelete
It's quite something.Delete
No debe ser muy prácico el sistema, cuando tan pocas veces se utiliza,ReplyDelete
