The Kopp-Etchells Effect: Beautiful Helo pics

The Kopp-Etchells Effect: the worlds’ ugliest flying machine looking completely beautiful.


  1. Amazing post. Thank you for sharing. Next time that helo flies over my house, I’ll look to see if it has a halo. God bless those serving men and women.

  2. Static electrical discharge from the rotor blades, exacerbated by the dry conditions. Normally only visible under night-vision goggles (NVGO. Just wait until you are refueling a chopper (helicopter) that has engines running, from a C-5 with engines running, under NVG conditions. Spooky.
