Most people who are interesting in watching spectacular helicopter crash videos will have already seen this video, but if you haven’t then you really do need to.
The video was captured by photography Murray Job at Auckland Viaduct Harbour on 23rd November 2011. Whist erecting a seven story high structure, the rotor of the ZK-HIG Aerospatiale AS350B2 helicopter struck a cable causing the aircraft to crash to the ground. The video showed the Rigger appear to tighten a cable which in turn caused another to tighten and come into contact with the rotors of the helicopter. The forces of the damage caused to the rotor mechanism in turn put extreme forces of the structure of the helicopter causing it to break apart and fall the ground. It was the helicopter crash video footage to top them all.
Luckily, no one was killed in the helicopter crash, although the pilot did incur some minor injuries and can be seen being helped away from the crash site.
