Aero-News Quote Of The Day (11.20.05)

"[I]t was never an aircraft... It never flew. It was essentially an incomplete concept model, the shell of an idea. It was never structurally completed. It was never mechanically completed. It was never electrically harnessed. There was only one rotor head produced, the second was not. There were only blades made for the one head. There were no drive train components. The upper structures both fore and aft were never manufactured. The interior was never completed. In no way, shape, or form did it qualify as an aircraft, historic or otherwise."

Source: R. Steve Maxham, Army Aviation Museum Curator, at Ft Rucker, Alabama, commenting on a controversy that has exploded across the internet very un-helicopter-like speed.
