Hello everyone,

I really neep your help abut this:

What kind of helicopter is the Airwolf from the TV-Series "Airwolf". What type/subtype is this one. I think it's a kind of Bell-Helicopter isn't it? Maybe you can give me some more facts about this...?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Also would it really be possible to fit something like those "turbo's" to a helicopter, or would it just rip the rotors off ??.

It wouldn't really be possible without serious modifications. The big limit for helicopter speed is that at a certain point, the rotor blades travelling forward will break the sound barrier. This has very unfortunate results.  Smile There have been some research into slowing down (or stopping) rotors at high speed. Doing that, together with an horizontal jet or propeller, would in theory enable a helicopter to go much faster.
