Captain America holds down an Airbus AS350 helicopter

The movie Captain America: Civil War features an amusing scene in which Captain America stops an Airbus AS350 helicopter from taking off – using nothing but his bare hands.

Common sense would tell you that this would be an absolutely impossible feat for any normal human – but hey, we’re talking about Captain America here!

Just how strong would Captain America need to be to do this? recently posted about how much strength it would take to bicep curl a helicopter.
