But seriously, glad everyone walked away from it.
Yes, the first crash was at the NCSHP Training Center also.that training center is for helicopters what florida is for people it seems. that was where the first crash happened too wasn't it?
yeah i remember thinking at the time, it seems like LANDING that sucker ON THE TRAILER would have been the hard part........The first helicopter didn't get 5 feet up.
IIRC, a retaining cable on the trailer that transported it in was not disconnected.
hopefully there will be an investigation by the NC Dept of Public Safet......Oh....right....not going thru pre-flight safety checks.
