Auckland chopper crash pilot flies again

Post by Philster » Mon Dec 05, 2011 2:52 am

Boosted by the confidence of having his son at his side, the helicopter pilot involved in a dramatic crash in central Auckland last week has returned to the skies.

The video itself almost gave me a heart attack. The pilot is one brave and lucky guy.

Another angle. You can see the pilot as he is almost throw out of the helicopter.
