When I was a kid, a local supermarket decided to dump a 55 gallon drum of new toys from WHAM-O called a "SuperBall" out on the parking lot from a helicopter, hovering at about 80 feet. The result was very similar to this video. Some of them bounced 35 to 40 feet into the air, and they went all over the place between the bouncing and propwash. This was about 40 years ago years ago, and every once in a while you can still find one in the wooded areas near this shopping center.
I swear some of them bounced completely over the whole store and out of sight, about 30 store windows were broken, and us kids got pummeled by all the balls hitting us.
It was great.
This video Brought back memories!
BTW, an episode of the TV show "WKRP in Cincinnati" had an episode based on this event involving Thanksgiving Turkeys. If you don't know, Turkeys can't really fly.....
