Oh yeah, this example of several things:

-Humour

-A time-relevant celebration of a xenophobic American holiday.

-A bit of rotary wing vs non-rotary wing aeroengineering / compare / contrast (and additional aeroengineering stuff that Gabiee could write pages on)

-Total air disaster

-Attention to fundamentals AND procedures with not-so-much computer automation

-Greedy, Wall-Street Corporate PR spin that...ummm…..falls flat.

-Things about flying that we think we (in particular, AC) know.

If the “perving” part is adult RJ hosties in the woods (or similar adult activities), I believe this is an excellent activity...cameras not_required, either.
