amazing heli footage



The Abeille Flandre is an amazing rescue tug and I have posted videos of her before. What makes this one so special is the helicopter footage - just how low is he flying???

Amazing!!!

That looks to me like the same tug and the same video that is up under the name "Marejada" from time to time - better image quality though and slightly different angles but could have been taken at the same time!
