Seen that one a while ago - what gets me is just how long the 2 ribs take to throttle up - to busy rubbernecking as the Yanks would say!!!

I did try before to see if anyone on the chopper survived but didn't get the info.

Whilst searching I came across a truly horrific video which was of some bulgarian or similar UN troops who were in a helicopter shot down in what I think was Iraq> Really terrible video still get nightmares over it and no I will NOT post a link!!!

I would have thought the RIbs were wise enough to stay back while the rotors were still active and if you look closely, you'll see the guy in the right hand seat start to climb out of the window as soon as he realises what's happening, and then, there's a kind of black dot in the water in that general area after the 'copter has gone down. I would like to think it's the co-pilot and that he survived OK.

How I enjoyed that .

Royal Navy would never do that type of HOT landing, they always come alongside first and then move over the landing spot to land.
