A crazy Apache helicopter crash is caught on video at a remote combat outpost in the Sharana district of Afghanistan’s eastern Paktika province in 2012.
It appears that the pilot may have been attempting a low-level aerial maneuver to boost the morale of the frozen ground troops when he loses lift and impacts the ground, narrowly missing a group of solders. After sliding for several meters across the snow, the attack chopper shoots back into the air and begins a crazy spinning and flipping sequence before crashing back into the ground and finally stopping. Incredibly, no one was injured in the event.
