Helicopter Pilot Screws Up Landing And Tears Up A Building

You know that sound a helicopter makes when it gets too close to you? The roaring whirr that makes you pause and try to figure out why it is a helicopter’s hovering nearby. Does it make you nervous to approach one? Maybe don’t watch this clip then.


Popular Mechanics drew our attention to the brief video, which shows a helicopter attempting to land, before getting too close to the building next to its destination. As it touches down, there’s a moment where everything seems fine—and then it tears into the facade.

Clearly, the people filming weren’t interested. The camera immediately veers away, as the onlookers probably didn’t want flying debris to strike them in the face.

Be careful out there.
