Default OT: Cool Helicopter!

A friend sent me these pictures. Figured you guys might like to see them.
I'm not sure of the source of this quote,
"Some Afghan is probably freaking out right
about now. The story is: this very special
MI-24 helicopter is presently flying in
Afghanistan, where it is no doubt causing
quite a stir."

I bet the guy that painted this would be good at painting boats.

Hey I had a thought on your water preasure issue. What about running the blue impellers? They are sapposed to produce less water preasure.

Jon you’re way to quick. Now I know why your the "King Post Ho"! I used the Gary Grimmes pressure relive system and problem is solved. The Oil temperatures are cooler also. Merc sucks! I posted some pictures of the install a few months ago in the Fountain section.
