THIS PILOT REALLY WANTED A DRINK
A helicopter is not a car. So trying to park it like one could come with some serious issues. A pilot found this out the hard way. In the video below you will see a chopper hovering over a canal next to the Rustic Inn (Irish Pub), apparently trying to land between two poles on the bank. The pilot abandons his first attempt to touch down and flies off to make another pass. During the second attempt things seem to be going well but just as the skids are about to kiss the grass, the tail flicks out violently and slams into the side of the Rustic Inn, sending debris flying. The pilot who is in his 60’s has been arrested and he is lucky to be alive. Next time just take a cab when you want to get a drink.
