Watching this Bell AH-1 Cobra attack chopper nosedive into the dirt, it's amazing that no one at the scene, including the pilot, was seriously hurt. The incident happened
while the South Korean edition of Top Gear was filming a race between the Corvette ZR1 and the Cobra, the sort of stunt that
the show is known for.
Things went south immediately after the Corvette crossed the finish line and the Cobra peeled off and away from the track. What happened next isn't
entirely clear, although The Telegraph reports that the pilot lost control. Whatever happened, the helicopter appears to be a total write-off.
I'm impressed by the composure of the Korean host, who quickly hops out of the car to assist (despite the popular notion that a crashed aircraft is going
to explode thanks to Hollywood). An expensive misadventure, but fortunately everyone lives to tell the tale. And it makes for dramatic video.
