This Is The Weirdest Dang Helicopter I Have Ever Seen

Without a doubt, most definitely, hands down, This is one of the weirdest flying machines you will ever see. This is most certainly some sort of multi-dimensional alien craft. What you are looking at is the Kaman K-Max, and it looks like it’s getting into a wobbly hand battle above its own head.

Key Takeaways:

  • The K-Max helicopter is strange looking for a reason. It has two big rotors on top that are synchronized not to hit each other.
  • The purpose of this helicopter is to haul large external loads using large cables. It has been used in Afghanistan with great success which has caused orders to increase.
  • The shape of the helicopter is long and narrow and it has good visibility. This gives it an advantage in long line hauling because the pilot can see what is going on.
