What happens in this video ?
May 2006 - The Mi-14 Haze amphibious helicopter was hovering over the water when the pilot attempted to fly forward. The drag from the water tilted the massive chopper forward and the rotor blades hit the water. That's when the engine exploded and the helicopter rolled into the water. 12 members of the crew were rescued but the pilot was killed.
