Seems to be a common move that causes these helicopters to crash. I swore I saw another helicopter crash here just like that.

That Cobra was holding back big time. I've watched those guys at work in the field and they fly the shit out of those choppers. Tight turns and earth hugging maneuvers are child's play to them.

Is it me or did I hear the guy in the vette say "Oh Shit" at about the 1:20 mark? Guess some things are universal no matter the language.
