    Yeah, jump to 9:47 to where something actually happens.

    What is the big deal, turbo props have been around for a long, long time.

    In Soviet Russia, even our propellers have propellers.

    Is she Russian, or rushin' to the buffet?
    Not that it matters - I'd date her.

    The Russians have been doing contra rotating props since the 50's.

    I am of the belief that we flirted with the idea a bit with perhaps less enthusiasm than the Russians.

    I was going to mention that too. They seemed to be fond of counter-rotating props, despite of their complex gearing needed to achieve that.
