Barely Scraping By.
Flying a helicopter isn’t the easier job in the entire world, there are a couple of challenges. But even more difficult is flying a helicopter over a hostile war zone, as this pilot found out.
In those volatile areas, helicopters are anything but subtle when they arrive on the scene. They make a lot of noise, they don’t exact have the best maneuverability in the world so you’re often a sitting duck. The people on the ground aren’t always the friendliest and they may not take too kindly to you flying over their town. In fact, they might even try to knock out you out of the skies if they see you up there.
In this video, you can see a helicopter flying over the city of Damascus when things start to go south. It comes under attack from heat-seeking missiles but that chopper has one hell of a pilot at the stick. Watch this pilot defy death with moves that will have you in utter disbelief as he escaped the attack.
