Experience the adrenaline rush of taking off and flying high in the largest helicopter ever produced. The Hotelicopter features 18 luxuriously-appointed rooms for adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable travel experience.

Can you imagine if this bad baby hit's the ground?

If it is real, then why are all available images CG?

I wouldn't put it past someone to build it though, sort of a spruce goose syndrome I suppose. Make it huge for the sake of it being possible.

I wouldn't trust it though.

If it went into a large Texas sized UFO mother ship it might
be OK but I've heard getting near them can cause mechanical
Not good.

Why not just start out with the mother ship in the first place.
It must be a gag and you get a transfer to the mother ship hanger.

It's probably some project proposal, though I doubt it's very serious. It's the kind of thing that ends up in magazines like popular mechanics, but never goes anywhere.

Several websites, including some that should know better, are reporting that a guy named Alvin Farley has spent five years converting the world's largest helicopter into the world's first flying hotel. The modified Soviet Mil V-12 helicopter is 137 feet long and features 16 cabins and two suites decked out with queen-size beds, heated toilets and whirlpools. The flying five-star hotel makes its inaugural flight June 26.

First, the Mil V-12 is a real helicopter, but there's no way Farley bought one. The Soviets only built two. One crashed in 1968. The other currently sits in a museum in Moscow. We have the pictures to prove it. Second, the interior shots of the Hotelicopter were lifted straight from Yotel, the chain of hotels that offers tiny accommodations at European airports.

Can't be bothered to follow up, but sounds about right

Yeah a popular mechanics feature that is now high grade
computer graphics and on the net.

Poor old pop mechanics.

Any one see that bridge in New York for sale.
Put up a toll gate and you got some income.

It's a hoax. The interior images were taken from One of the Flight blogs talked about it. They thought it was genius, but the interior pictures gave it away.

Great use of NASA graphics equipment, will do wonders for the exploration
of space. When do you expect to fire it up for the Mars expedition.

Video processing equipment in government hands is a clear and
present dis information vehicle.

Where do you get NASA from this? NASA had absolutely NOTHING to do with this, it was a private blog that wanted to have fun. Or is NASA letting just anyone come along and use their equipment now?
