    Holy s*** !!!!!

    The pilot was flying way too low. What was he thinking?  Smiley

    That must be one very expensive mistake.

    Good thing the pilot is OK though. Was the pilot named Harry? Smiley

    The pilot was not flying low, it was part of the show and the AH1 is quite capable of doing that. I just think he made a mistake when he did that last turn before the crash, which in my opinion was unnecessary (the risky turn). Gladly, nobody was hurt (there were people very close to the crash site). Maybe he had a technical malfunction of some sort, the AH1 used is privately owned and maintained.

    Lucky no one on the ground was injured. The crew was scrambling right at the crash site to not get hit by any parts.. they were very close. I think the helicopter should be able to do such moves, this one seemed like a 100% pilot error. He needed more space below as it loses height in such a tilted turn.

    I actually read somewhere that the pilot or co-pilot actually cut off the fuel distribution right before the crash and this is the reason why nobody was hurt or killed. I know only a little about choppers from my military time, so I don't know how much truth is in it.

    Re: Heil Crash - Corvette vs Cobra

    Don't know about the fuel, but especially with powerful helicopters like this one, you can easily pull it in a position where the lift is not aimed in a direction that keeps the aircraft in the air. For example, if you want to fly faster with a helicopter, you have to push the cyclic stick forward. This will tilt the rotor disc forward, so a part of the lift provided by the rotors will be used to pull the aircraft forward. As a result, there is less lift to keep the aircraft in the air, so the collective thrust needs to be increased as well.

    Now, if you look at the last second of the movie, you see that the aircraft is pulling up, and in a steep turn as well. As a result, the lift provided by the rotor is not aimed downward (keeping the aircraft in the air), but sideways (to keep the aircraft in the turn). So the aircraft will start to fall down. At this low altitude, this was impossible to correct and the aircraft slammed into the ground. In my layman's opinion, this looks a lot like pilot error...

    This was a windy day, burst of winds.

    Simple miscalculation of the pilot + wind
