Terrific French Army helicopter landing in Paris
What happens in this video ?
This Puma SA-330BA belonging to the French Army crashed in April 1999 during a training exercise of the French GIGN (police special forces), near Les Mureaux in France. The helicopter landed with a pitch angle too high in order to avoid missing the landing spot. The tail hit the ground, breaking the tail rotor. The crew managed to lie the chopper down rapidly, thus avoiding hurting people waiting their turn in the vicinity. Only light injuries onboard.
