Attack helicopters with rubber duckies???


I had to laugh at some of the reactions to this tweeted photograph of flotation bags for AH-64 Apache attack helicopters in British service.

“Daddyshags” replied:  “Oh s*** they weaponized the minions again.”  I thought that was a hoot – and yes, those flotation bags do bear a resemblance to the movie characters, don’t they?

Another respondent had an even better comparison.

I think there’s going to be a certain amount of gigglage over that among Apache pilots . . .



  1. I suppose I have an engineer's mind. I don't care what it looks like if it WORKS. I can appreciate aesthetics as much as anyone, but it needs to be functional first.
