The model 3 in flight, 1924.
IMO the onlookers are way too close in case anything goes wrong and blade fragments start flying everywhere...

One ... umm ... posthumous Pescara helicopter design is the Gyrocopter which can be seen in the movie "The Nutcracker in 3D". Set in the 1920s, in an somewhat altered reality, the film features this purely CGI machine, one whose design shows influences from the Art Deco movement, and from Raoul Pescara's rotor design.

Behance - Nutcracker in 3D

Youtube - Nutcracker in 3D (full movie)

Youtube - Nutcracker in 3D (cued to the first appearance of the Gyrocopter)

Youtube - Nutcracker in 3D (cued to the launch of the Gyrocopter)

If you haven't seen the movie before, count yourself lucky. On the movie rating website Rotten Tomatoes, it has an approval rating of 0%. No, that isn't a typo.

Cheers,
Paul
