Helicopter Goes Down Hard After Instant Failed Takeoff Attempt

With certain things in this world, it might look easy. For instance, flying a helicopter or airplane might seem like a little bit of steering along with controlling the throttle and you’re in there. However, there’s a reason why extensive training and licensing is required to get behind the controls of one of these things. As it turns out, while good pilots might make it look easy, it’s really not as simple as it might seem. If you don’t know what you’re doing or how to respond to conditions aren’t exactly in your favor while in flight, I don’t think that it takes a professional to tell you that things could end up going incredibly wrong.

This time, we check out a situation that definitely didn’t end well for the pilot here or whoever it was that was behind the controls of this helicopter. It’s not exactly clear if it was outright the pilot’s fault or some sort of malfunction occurred within the mechanical workings of this helicopter but the fact still remains that this thing went down and went down incredibly hard. It doesn’t look like anybody in the surrounding area was injured in the incident, but we have no word on the individual behind the controls here.

If you follow along down in the video below, you’ll be able to catch the incident as it unfolds right in front of our eyes. This is definitely pretty close to a worst-case scenario as you can basically tell from the first sign of this thing leaving the ground that it’s not going to end well. Hopefully, everyone was able to make it out of this thing without getting banged up too bad and the pilot would be able to go on to fly another chopper in the future.
