So pumped for you brother. And the fact that you purchased it without checking if it will fit in your hangar is why you’re the best 😂
be good to see it land in the middle of the freedom factory , maybe a burn out or two haha
If it don’t fit -just buy another one!!🤷🏻♂️A tape measure from Home Depot would tell you!😁It should fit-The rotors pivot to the rear to make it a lot narrower. A post Vietnam Blackhawk!! Ahhhh To be young and rich!! Trivia: 5000 🚁 helicopters were shot down in Vietnam!!😧11,000 were flown!
@G M definitely
Wish they'd slow the roll sometimes....pause cam on some details please. :D
Now your journey to something this magnificent is continuing. You need to build that jet boat race track on your property
As prior service and a Blackhawk crew chief... I appreciate the work you've done with this girl. It's gorgeous and it's been great following all this. ❤️
I am in ait and I have orders to a flight company, can you tell me what to expect?
I love how you purchased, transported and refurbished an acctual Blackhawk helicopter but really had to "bite the bullet" on those headsets. 😂
Pretty sure that was an ad. But you didnt get it.
Seriously...Those headset's amount to 1/8 tank of fuel for this thing.
ʟᴇᴛ's ᴛᴀʟᴋᴛʜᴀɴᴋs ғᴏʀ ᴡᴀᴛᴄʜɪɴɢ
I love the fact that you went from having $500 in your pocket to being able to own your own Blackhawk helicopter. This just shows how hard work and dedication can really pay off.
@yougeo he bought/sold/modified diesel trucks way before he got a show on discovery(I think) doing it. He has a vid somewhere driving around to his older smaller shops. He had like a single bay to start out, he and the buildings kept growing. Hats off to him, seems to have a lot of fun. One of the reasons he's so popular is because the stuff he does appeals to so many people. It's why we're here watching.
@Twopinky Onestinky thanks I knew there had to be something else.
@yougeo His TV series... 7 whole seasons of Diesel Brothers.
@yougeo @Pat Kuckertz he must have had quite a lot of money in the first place becuase in his first few videos on his channel he already owns a helicopters and presumably quite a lot of land
How does this guy make his money? I just seen junking old cars and things from old abandoned lots. Is there something I've missed or is it all Clip-Share money. And how much did this blackhawk cost?
This is amazing! As a Canadian I admire the rugged aspect of American dreams!. As a parent of a young family I don't have the funds to pursue my dream as pilot, so my kids and I watch your videos and fly with you every step of the way! We love it!!! God bless America and your Canadian neighbour's!. 🇺🇲🇨🇦
God Bless Canada your gonna need it to oust Trudoe and get your country back.
As a retired veteran and someone who has lots of flight hours in the Blackhawk I would like to thank you for what you are doing for the Veteran community. Would love to get back up in a Hawk someday 🖤
let this hero show you whats what!!
ive had plenty time in a blackhawk as a army maintainer they never looked that nice
Heavy D, take this man for a spin!
shit id you got a lot of flight hours id shoot him an email, maybe hes looking for a pilot!
Thank you for your service
What a project, absolutely brilliant. Everyone that was involved in this project showed so much love for it! So cool
Hey I can’t fly I am a Parkinson’s patient and I don’t have a ride but if I could fly I would really love to learn how to fly and be apart of your organization best wishes for you and yours…..you guys have a great time and fly safe please ."…."".
Get in touch ↖️↖️ congratulations...,.,.
Wish you and your team a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! I so very happy to see all the dreams and hard work turn into such a GREAT experience for you! Keep on rocking and be safe brothers!!
Similar to how Mythbusters increased interest in STEM programs, I think you and Mike Patey will do the same for aviation. Blackhawk is awesome!

Everything you do on this channel you do on a different level, i think the veterans would love it, can you lift cars out of ravines would like to see you do that
SAS would be amazing as well as doing recovery work in remote places like a air crane I'm a crane operator and studying to become a air crane operator I would love to see what your team can do. My grandfather was a air crane operator my dad was a crane operator and I'm am looking forward to following in both of their foot prints. God bless you starks.
“ An experience they really love in a non-hostile situation” 💪🏽
As a person who has been in the military version good to see this version Congratulations on making your dream have and it’s good to see you helping others and willing to help others achieve their goals thank you
Just earn a new subscriber. Thank you for looking out after the Veteran community the way you do.
As a parent I hope you never change your format. This is one of the few channels I don’t need to worry about the content and as family we can enjoy! Nice helicopter!
@Supernatural Beings of Earth. Study & Tracking What are you talking about?
Yes until whistling diesel Family values are done
I recommend demoranch’s multiple channels majority of his stuff is child friendly depending on your personal views
What stealing from people and conning them out of their money
I couldn't Agree more...🇺🇲💯🤙
Congrats Dave! I love seeing fellow Americans live their dream!
Keeping humble, salute to the entire team meticulous is the word 🍻
Dave you have a great heart ❤️ to help the veteran with a courtesy flight thanks. 29:33
that's so cool that you are going to do stuff with vets. I flew an a few flights in Germany during the 70's. that bird is cool dude. to those that have the honor to fly on it as veterans it will be in there stories for life. thank you to you and your crew.
Dave: As a Naval Veteran (aviation-non-flying) and retired LE, all I can say is thank you for all you have done, are doing, and will do on behalf of veterans and the first responder community. You rock!
@floorsin bower Generally means that they will handle radio communication, operational monitoring and also perform supportive and supplemental tasks.. Hope that helps.
Pardon my ignorance but what does aviation-non-flying mean?
Thank you for your service to our country and the sacrifice you made while enlisted!.. I hope/pray that you and your family are doing well and that you/everyone will have a very Merry Christmas. 🙏🙏

I'm Canadian but wanted to take a moment and thank you for your commitment to your country, your (and your family's) sacrifice and your hard work. On behalf of a regular Joe citizen (again albeit from Canada). YOU rock too.Heather🇨🇦
Here’s wishing you and every person you carry many safe flights in this beautiful bird
Appreciate your support of Veterans as I am one. There are so many Veterans that were left behind after deployments in trying to rebuild their lives after a year to a year and a half away from family and friends and their support networks. It takes a great toll on their well-being to get started again. I can see your actions and support moving them forward. Blackhawks are amazing aircraft for sure. Spent a little time in a few as a Armour officer. Look forward to seeing how help Veterans, your community in Utah and others. Good luck in your future. Liked your FAA comments but I'm sure EPA is another story. Be safe.
Great to see someone famous/wealthy getting genuinely excited to see something they have bought and made their own. Enjoyed watching this
Your a very awesome man Heavy D,my brother and father were vet's,God bless them, I know they'd love everything you have done,awesome accomplishment!!!(just wish they were here for a ride)
Love the videos! I’d love for you to come to the airshow in St. Louis! Happens every other year and you know exactly how to get here as I see you stopped off at Spirit on your way back! Keep up the great work!
its an amazing feat for sure man. so many cogs and gears to come together on this. I am looking forward to see how you can use this amazing machine with your recoveries and search and rescue endeavors!
Dude congratulations, I’m so happy for you.
Wow Congratulations on showing our young people about Dreams and what it takes to make them a reality.The Blackhawk is Perfect. You guys have done so much more than build Trucks. YOU MAKE AMERICA PROUD.. God Bless From Indiana
Oh man, so happy for you Dave! I'm a hospice nurse, my vets are my favorite patients. We are loosing our history as our great generation, our WWII vets are graduating to the heavens. Its so awesome to see you wanting to honor our vets! God bless, this is why I support you guys! 🙏 please be safe, and oh, my favorite part of this, was the overhead shot in the hanger, and how this bad boy dwarfed the lil planes lol. I hope I get to see it in person someday. You ought to tour all the National and State Parks we have. Start in Garfield County we have the most lmbo. Wink wink 😉
Started following you when you helped that family in Oregon. Love the new ride. Put that on a fire contract for a year or two. 👌🏼
It’s a beautiful machine… happy for you bud. Can’t wait to see what you get up to with it… how much external weight can it lift? 😉

Love the idea about taking vets for a 'leisure ride'. I don't have a lot of extra money, but would love to help contribute some cash to maybe partially sponsor a flight for a vet. No particular vet, but I think it's an amazing idea and I would love to try and help in some small way.
That’s amazing! I actually saw this fly over my house. The airport it landed at when he was talking about his fuel stops is in Concordia Kansas
Wow, I"ve been in Aviation for almost 40 years and stumbled across your channel a while back. Military, Commercial airline pilot and I now fly Gulfstreams and I watch a lot of aviation related youtube stuff but this is the best I've seen. Cheers man and good work 👍🏻
thank you captain
God bless, I'm speechless! Kinda. It is so amazing, regular guy's doing regular things! (Dream's). Cool to stop at whistlen diesel's. Your vet program is beautiful! Looking forward to seeing you guys at an airshow. Full power!!!!!

AWESOME video, and I love what your doing for our Veterans,
Great video as usual!! I watched this with my 7yo video and at one point he looked at me and asked me “ daddy why are you crying?” I told him that when I was in the army I spent a lot of time in and around that type of helicopter and it brought back some great memories. He said so those are happy tears and I said yes son happy tears. Thanks for the video and your channel my son and I enjoy and appreciate all of it. Oh and nothing beats that Blackhawk rotor chop it’s truly its own beautiful sound ❤
Get in touch ↖️↖️ congratulations....

Sparks. I really am happy for you.u definitely earned it. Watching u n the boys. Made me think about myself and I need to get my self back in gear. I almost lost my drive. I grew up in NYC projects and there's nothing but bad literally all around me. One day I would like to have an opertunily to work for you. Once I get my classA license. N Dave u r the funniest rough looking dude I ever seen.
Honestly man this is the most badass thing I’ve ever seen on the internet! And your mission behind the Blackhawk is amazing! I’ll call it mission Blackhawk for vets lol ! Keep up the good work

I enjoyed this video on your new Blackhawk. I really liked your floor mating. And rest of your modifications are quite clever!!! Tske care!
That is so awesome. I was a CH-53 Crew Chief in the Marine Corps a bunch of years ago and I have daughter that works on Blackhawks in the Army’s 101st Airborne. Helicopters get in your blood and it’s forever. Beautiful bird!!!!!

I was a vet working on ground-based electronics, and I hope someday to see what it's like up in the skies. I think that's so awesome of you to offer to fly vets! Thank you!
Congratulations on getting the Blackhawk done it turned out beautiful lookin & can't wait to see what you have in store for the future with the channel
Oh that's another good question: how much does it cost to refuel it?, how much fuel does it hold?
Thank you guys for this interesting and informative vlog I look forward to watching the next step on this journey
Insanely jealous, it was a beautiful helicopter to begin with taken to the next level!! Great content as always loved following along on the journey, watching from over pond in the UK!

This is insane. It's awesome you pulled this off. Enjoy the Heli!!!
I hope you get to use it for rescue and recovery somehow... I don't know how much they can lift, but if you could air lift a car out of a mountain thatd be crazy. Maybe a skycrane helicopter next lol
The blackhawk is absolutely beautiful and amazing. 👊
Get in touch ↖️↖️ congratulations
Dude!!!! Congratulations on the Blackhawk!!! Also I wanted to tell you thank you and that Im very grateful for your kindness to others and willingness to give back, especially to our veterans. The veteran flying program you're working on sounds absolutely amazing. Thank you for being you!!! Your an absolutely amazing example of what a loving, giving and kind soul should be!!! 🙂
Congrats on that beautiful helicopter.. I always wanted to fly in one.. Maybe someday I will..
Dave,will you bring your blackhawk to Wisconsin for the EAA show next year? That would be awesome if you could stop over and show it off. It would be an honor to meet you. I,ve been a you tube subscriber and have watched your youtube videos as well as the discovery channel show that you have been on for several years. God bless and take care.

Send that came out right I’m gonna leave it the way it is
This is amazing. Thank you for sharing this amazing video.
The way Joe looks at that helicopter shows how much pride he takes in his work. You can see the emotion.
Congrats on finally getting the blackhawk back. cant wait to see what you post with it next. id say you should head down to texas and do some hog hunting out of it with LunkersTV !

Way to go! I am looking forward to seeing you and your Blackhawk at Sun n fun and Oshkosh.
Amazing finale to a great restoration and first flight of your new Blackhawk, just awesome!!!
You guys are absolutely unique and I wish I had started following you sooner. I truly respect your humility and appreciation for those around you (including the FAA). I cannot wait to see you put smiles on Vets faces with this thing and if given the chance I would be damn honored to shake your hand and the hand of all your crew!!
As your neighbor I hope to see this soon! Loved the vid
It looks amazing. Congratulations
Definitely would love more aviation content!!!!!
That's bad A! Love to fly. I have never been in a helicopter but hope to one day. I always wanted to be a pilot. Watching you just puts a smile on my face congrats bro!
What a journey, not just this chapter but the entire book so far for you, your friends and family. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.A testament that desire, drive, determination, integrity and faith can make great things happen for all of us.We are looking forward to the next chapter and appreciate all that you do, selflessly for vets and the community.God's speed ;-) and good luck. Cleared for the option, maintain VFR. JV
I’m in the military rn and I’ve never flown in a black hawk bc I am a mechanic but I’m glad you were able to get your bird airborne and hope to see you flying it solo one day
Really cool. Congrats! Do some more good with it.
Get in touch↖️↖️ congratulations...
Great chopper looks awesome
Its always beautiful to see a persons dream come true. One of the greatest things a person can experience in life! Gratz
Dave, I have always loved Blackhawks and the love and care that you show your viewers and the people involved in this project is amazing. My uncle is ex military and he has been in them in the more stressful situations. I highly appreciate the fact that you want to give veterans rides in a non combat situation. That as well as everything you do comes from a big heart and that is very rare in these times. Much love to you and all of your friends.

No matter what just remember, the go and no go rule. I would love to take a flight with you anytime. Be a blast
I flew that aircraft for over 8 years i miss it for sure its an amazing ride!!
you work hard. you own it, good on you sir.

Absolutely incredible man!
20+ YEARS HERE AS A H-60 MECH. The Gucci seats are over the top... Awesome. I cant wait to see add future ad ons.
It would be nice to see lifting and moving training cleaning up the lake while the water is so low , but so what if a load is dropped it is trash anyways right
I'd like to see you and Mike Patey link up in your birds. You could do some amazing recovery missions that would help your communities.
Nice how the Blackhawk turned out. Thank you for your support of our veterans.
Kick ass project. Has to be the best piece of eqiupment in your inventory.
Congratulations! She's GORGEOUS! ❤
Helicopter is amazing,helicopters are very interesting machines Hope to see more of it
what a dream! I wanted to fly in the military. I was 6 months too old when i joined. that dream never happened. Im glad flying did for you!
You earned this. Years of hard work. Quality of your shows and the honesty you put forth has earned you this. I wish you the best. I am retired Navy. Flown in many helicopters. Had a few rides in SH-60s loaded for war. I’m an old disabled vet now. Nothing but best wishes
Just became a new subscriber after this video as I didn’t know you were into planes. You need to do more videos with your planes and helicopters
15:44 My favorite shot. Happy for you brother. Be safe.
I’d love to know how much all of the resto costs let alone the price of one of the helicopters
This is by far the coolest thing Ive seen in my 60 years of life. ROCK ON!
So freaking awesome! Can't imagine what it'll be like to own such a contraption, excited to see what you do with it. Recovery, shows, family vacation, charities, the list goes on! Congratulations!
As an apache helicopter, I appreciate your effort to restoring my cousin

Get in touch ↖️↖️↖️ congratulations ..
It looks amazing …love your videos…
I've been watching this from day one since you first purchased it I'm very excited for you
Thank you for sharing your Blackhawk dream with us. You choreographed a fine customization of an already rockin copter. I can't wait till you fly it up to Cerro Gordo for a visit to see Brent. Keep on bringing the great content, and thanks for looking out for our Vets.
All veterans should be treated a lot better than most from many or for all I know every country treats their own home countries people are treating them. All the Vet's are the same in the respect of the people who are fighting and putting their lives on the line to defend their people are absolutely deserving of the respect and support when they come home and struggle with adapting to non-combat life we are supporting the addict's and criminal homeless who are not incapable of getting back on their feet with more support than the people who are not wanting to do the work for bettering themselves and I don't have no idea what I've said I was in the unwilling category as well and I still think that the countries military should be treated much more respectfully and assisting with the rehab and reintegration to home life to go through just the training military personal go through it is not something that most people would consider subjecting themselves to the servicemen and women are strong and deserve to be respected like hero's all the same enlistment is the 1st brave choice one can make!!!
That Blackhawk turned out awesome
have you been out flying since you got it back to Utah? I think I have seen your blackhawk up in the air twice since I have seen this video.... Hope you are having fun and putting some hours on that beautiful bird!!!
I fully approve the collaboration with Cody
