Not only do I remember the show, I remember riding in one of these. Back in the day we had these in our fledgling air division. Rode as observer for a week in the fall. That was a cold, cold mofo, and periodically the bubble would front over when you exhaled.

Brave, brave men flew these in combat.

Looks nice. Very clean.

I am in the roofing business,here in Philadelphia it is all
flat roofs. A common roof vent we have are turbines.
Known in the industry as whirlybirds.

"For those of you, like me, that are old enough to remember this show" yes I do. My brother and I each had one. One of them had floats.
