Oftentimes when helicopters are deemed “out of commission” they end up in a museum, but in this case they ended up in the Upside Down Ceiling Fan by Raffaele Iannello. This ceiling fan has reproduced the legendary Hughes/MD 500 in fine fan form, complete with a fixture in the shape of a landing pad—no doubt, for extra effect.

This particular helicopter model was renowned for its ability to perform acrobatic feats and mid-air tricks. Iannello’s inventive structure shows this iconic aircraft in a landing pose on the ceiling versus in mid-air acrobatic feats. The propellers that were once responsible for weightlessly lighting this craft are now employed as blades of the fan. This design was recently unveiled at the 2012 Milan Design Show and has had many flight enthusiasts ready to get their hands on it.

Available with a shiny black exterior and a silver base, it will have Top-Gun-lovers giddy with excitement eager to add this aerial wonder to their treasured collection of trinkets.
