So enjoyable.... What is your problem? I guess a life threatening accident is enjoyable for you. Especially if its the stupid Yanks right? Would it still be enjoyable had you found out someone lost their life in that accident?

Yeah Brits don't do anything stupid.

No its a US Navy helo. I saw the emblem on the side of the body. Even if it were Canadian, French, or British my reaction was shock then immediate concern and prayer for the crew involved. I can understand the natural curiosity in viewing disasters but to be pleased by one is another thing.

British forces aren't allowed loose with dangerous or expensive equipment.... we're only in NATO to do the gags! They are travelling the world scaring everyone with terrible singing and at the moment http://blueice.dogscogs.com/Kosovomusicvideo.wmv
And even you Yanks seem to be learning from our strategy... you could only have learnt toilet humour from the Brits! http://blueice.dogscogs.com/worstkindofambush.wmv

I think the ribs did the right thing, with all the steam and spray they might not have been able to see it the roters were still spinning or where bailed out crew members might be? Plus the crew would need time to get out anyways

Saw a Chinook fly over our factory today, this thread reminded of the Manheim air show crash, that was truly sad, as you will recall a Chinook was taking up a group of parachutists some got out safely I still think of the others left inside.

That is one scary clip.

I witnessed a Jaguar jet crash into the sea 2 years ago at the Lowestoft air festival. You couldn't use your phone for about an hour after at there were so many people phoning their friends to tell them what had happened (I was one of them )!!

Apology time

Sorry if my earlier post caused offence and yes my concern with any incident like the ones shown is with the people involed, I didn't mean to trivialise it.

Sorry!
