Rotating Wing Aircraft

There used to be a time when journalists would check the facts of a story before it was published/broadcast. Now they appear to be happy to publish what are effectively works of fiction like this (which in itself isn't even a new work of fiction), or to spin something into a story where there really isn't one.
I wonder if the media vulture that has been fishing on Pprune is anything to do with this poor piece journalistic pap.
