    One for the Autogiro enthusiasts

    I was looking for something completely unrelated, and stumbled upon this. Thought some of you might like it as well.

    They must've had a pretty good wind for that landing approach, interesting that they don't show the rotor spin down, he probably had to turn tail to the wind to prevent blade flap.
