Oh my God,I still can't believe that a rotor that big can spin so fast, that's just so amazing. I just pray that I'll be one of the fortunate ones to fly some of these great inventions in the future. I thank those that put there time in saving there country,you all are my role model. I used to see these as a child and ask "why don't the blades hit" and I only found out fairly recently, after long forgetting that curious question as a child, at 35 years old, when I was told there is a shaft joining the engines together, so like an IC engine, the camshaft(s) and pistons are timed never to hit (unless of course your chain or belt break). At 4:00 such an awesome sight. Actually kinda neat seeing that crewman out the rear hatch. So awesome watching them spin up. Such incredible lift  and all held up by the rotor shaft.  Great concept having 2 counter rotating rotors equally rotating shaft driven together for heavy lift. Well this Transport Helicopter is beautiful and great for troops and other things i guess the Crane Helicopter or Mil Mi 26 rotate the propeller at very high speeds to lift heavy loads. So this Helicopter is somewhat special because the materials last longer and less maintenance is needed.
