Apache Helicopter vs. Tree

Posted on: January 13, 2006 | Views: 389 | Comment

A chopper nearly crashes when he disregards advice to go around a group of trees.

A viewer named Tom explains: "That was a standardization pilot and another aviator at FT Campbell. The deal is that he used to fly through those trees all the time when he had been at Campbell several years before. Upon returning to Campbell as a SIP, he didn't account for the fact that they had grown. Can you say 'Flight Evaluation Board' kids?"
