Helicopters

Riptide Helicopter - Screaming MimiScreaming Mimi - Nickname of the pink but well-worn Sikorsky S-58T helicopter owned by Cody Allen (Perry King) and Nick Ryder (Joe Penny) on the detective drama RIPTIDE/NBC/1984-86. Both former Vietnam veterans turned private eyes, Cody and Nick used the Screaming Mimi while investigating their cases. The front of the Screaming Mimi sported a painting of a large gaping mouth complete with upper and lower teeth and a huge set of pink lips (a sort of flying Mick Jagger). The rusty, smoke belching helicopter with drooping rotor blades used on the series was originally found in Van Nuys Airport covered with primer.
