Who invented the helicopter? Sikorsky? Try again. Da Vinci? Not a chance.
It was the Egyptians!! Don't believe me? Check this out then!

I remember seeing this on the History channel. I don't remember which program it was exactly, but its also where I learned about ancient lighting methods and the Baghdad battery. Thanks for posting!

Hehe, it reminds me of Stingray's little mystery at his unknown gallery.

And this is why I encourage attaching images instead of hotlinking.

I'd never seen that Mi-24 USCG fake. Interesting!

What is unusual about the second pic? As a non-Hind specialist, I can't really tell a fake from a special prototype... Number of rotor blades? Armament?

It has two extra armament pylons (too close to the others to be real) and a multi-sensor ball photoshopped on top of the original Raduga-F/Sh.

But if you are the big Hind expert you say you are, then you should already know that the Raduga (Rainbow) F/Sh was the original teardrop-shaped semi-automatic command to line-of-sight missile guidance system in front of the nose landing gear on the earliest Hind series, which was replaced by the Falanga-P (Phalanx) anti-tank missile system on the later Hind-D and future models.
