Real of Fake? Cobra crash on Top Gear Korea

Recommended Posts

Just saw this on youtube. Top Gear, some car racing a cobra. Car wins and cobra crashes. People are screaming its fake and editied. But their non aviation lovings butts can kiss my rump.

 

What you do guys think? Real or Fake

Looks real to me. The driver's reaction is to strong to be fake. I think if a heli was about to be in your face, you'd be running and screaming too. Top Gear has never been a show to fake that type of event for "entertainment".

Pretty sure you can also find the NTSB report on it

A source specifies that the man in command would be a retired US Army Lt Col.

I don't know what happened with the cobra pilot. He was very skillful, but on his last turn...?

Perhaps he got G-lock for a moment ? Why he did not brake off that sharp turn ?

Engine or rotor problems maybe ?

Strange...

I heard that something broke in the helo, hence it started a turn and then sort of stopped and flew itself into the ground. No g-loc in an AH-1!
