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.

flat roofs. A common roof vent we have are turbines.

Known in the industry as whirlybirds.
