Have a different story about that air frame and what happened to the pilot. But you know aviation... it is indeed a pit of stories... some true, some myth.

A helicopter is able to hover, relocate it’s position while in a hover, take off and land vertically without the aid of rockets or other unattached devices, and is without competition in these arenas.

Fixed wing aircraft cannot even compete with it, but then they have their own specific missions.

Helicopters don’t need to “keep up with the Joneses” to maintain their worth, imho.

Well there's Crop dusting and cattle herding

Say wouldn't a light (door lees) version of a 342 be awesome fun cat herding,..

And yes it's a thing I saw it on the internet.
Control is an illusion which usually shatters at the least expected moment.
Gazelle Mini-gun version is endorphins with rotors. See above.
