    The chopper shown is not under its own power, but suspended by cables from another helo above it, thus the engine sounds.

    It is being filmed with a high speed camera. The Frame rate of the camera just happens to be the same as the rotation speed of the propeller so it appears to be stationary, but its not. Look at the rear rotar, that is a slightly different speed so just looks slow.
    If at first you don't succeed, then bomb disposal probably isn't for you.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to there level and beat you on experience.

    Ok, better than mine. I'd buy it.

    I like Pdawg's answer, but I think Sandman is right. The film is slightly out of sync when the helicopter banks because the blades rotate at a different speed than when hovering or slow manuvers.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
