I love helos.

The scene from 28 weeks later where the chopper uses his rotors to mow down the horde was awesome.

Nice video!

Funny thing is that in order to be a successful combat helo pilot, you have to know how to fly that low and be proficient at it.

SAMs love choppers at 100+ ft and so do ZSU 23-4's.

I especially liked the weightless scene and the hyper-low flyby pass.

yeah, it's real easy to see them when you're going over 100 kts.

There is a certain ground effect that gives them extra lift at very low altitudes. Basically the air bounces off the ground and back up increasing the air pressure under the blades. In theory this means they can devote more power to moving forward and less to staying up, so they can actually go faster when very low. There were some Soviet "planes" that used this phenomena. They had very short wings and a whole lot of engines. They were designed to skim across the top lakes and seas. The Chinese have now started looking at building vehicles like this.

You can't use words like "unrealistic" when discussing anything that happens in a "zombie" movie.
