It is possible to suffer a worsening "drowning" visual effect while flying.
- Legacy ID
- Health System
- Carefully dunk a flying helicopter in the sea without destroying the engine. It is only necessary that the landing gear touch the water; the chopper's crew do not have to be submerged.
- Ascend so that the chopper is no longer near water.
- The same visual effect as is seen when the player is underwater without SCUBA gear is applied, and continues to worsen even after the chopper is out of the water.
Landing the chopper removes the effect.
Tested in the chopper showcase and using a littlebird in the editor.

As of 0.58.105348, I can no longer reproduce this bug, at least with a Ka-60.
Presume this is related to SPOTREP 4's "Improved ‘fording depth’ for helicopters to deal with ‘landing’ on water better".
