|WINDMILL was a flight instructor at the Army Flight Warrant Officers School in Fort Rucker and later flew experimental helicopter prototypes at the same facility for the Army Aviation Department Test Activity. You might think that test-piloting helicopters is easier, or even safer, than testing jet fighters. Consider this—helicopters don't have ejection seats. If you make a mistake, you ride down with it!|
"When the G.I. Joes are sitting on a hot LZ waiting for an extraction chopper, they want fast air support with maximum fire-suppression. The X-Wing Chopper clocks at 345 mph in its stopped-rotor mode and can carry a bigger payload than a Dragonfly. Windmill can get there faster, with more thrust, and once he's there, he can make every piece of ordnance count!"
|Toy Notes: Item #6045. The prototype shown in the 1988 insert catalog was a Crazylegs recolor with Law's torso.
