    I guess they weren't worried about snipers while waiting for rotors to spin down. Or...perhaps they were supposed to be disguised as vertical shafts!

    Doesn't seem like that would be too practical for front line combat operations but it might be useful in the mess hall as a big ass egg beater

    NOPE! Private Jones, Front and center!

    counter-rotating blades, and no way out but down. Bet they all got repurposed as paper shredders later on.

    Bill, who got used as Airman Jones on a couple of small details a decade or two later.
