How ironic, a Medical transport that requires a "Medical Transport".

Not exactly what you see every day! It must be a serious problem that they cannot eve ferry... Removing the Rotor Blades and bring it down by Crane... Kind of makes me wonder if he shelled and engine! That is the only reason that I can see they would be doing that... as they said an Engine Performance light has nothing to do with the Drive Train! ( Maintenance Prospective )

Had that happen to me & a group of others in the Canal Zone in Panama (back in the day) one time on a UH-60 Blackhawk. Was going out to watch Navy personnel perform some security work when one of those lights you should really pay close attention to came on. We landed next to the canal, and after an hour or so, and after the pilots ran the engine for a while; we had a very quick flight back to Howard AFB.

I thought they had perfected rotorless flight. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yr3ngmRuGUc

They covered up all Identifying information with brown paper and tape.

very slow autorotation... looks like the rotor brake was adding some fun for the handling crew - or lack of? Main rotor bearings working as advertised. I would hate to be the patient brought in on that ship, only to see it leave on a flatbed.

It's just a helicopter on a crane but if anyone's interested, here's the link for anyone not allowed to view it because of territorial restrictions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2iPQy_vCTc

It's clearly a global conspiracy by the deep state. Thanks, Obama.

Occasionally they have trouble staying upright while being dismantled...
