Re: US Navy Helicopter Decapitation

During WWII, in the South Pacific, natives would walk into air plane propellers because they didn't understand that they hadn't actually disappeared.

The first person was dad, who was in the Army Air Corps/Air Force from '42-'67, though not in the PTO. I've heard it other places, but wouldn't be able to say where.

There have been hard enough landings with helicopters to cut into the cockpit and ruin the pilot's day.
