Ouch!

R44 Pilot:
"Doc, it hurts when I do this."

Doc:
"Don't do that!"

UPDATE:
Well, something interesting is going on.
"Charley", the featured "super" helicopter pilot that wrecked his perfectly lovely helicopter, has forced YouTube to take down the video. Luckily, Cousin Jim found another one and forwarded it to me.
So, if you want to show your friends some very poor judgement displayed by a helicopter pilot, you can just click

This just an observation from an airplane pilot, but, don't you need some kind of vertical clearance before attempting to leave the ground in a helicopter? That pilot is an IDIOT.

I think you might have meant "OOPS"

At the 604th in 1969, we used to fly the birds OUT of the hangar and sometimes IN but never INTO. At least they didn't burn...

Don't you need a license to fly a helicopter?? Just wondering.
