With my newfound interest in Lukla, due to Aerosofts latest release for aerofly, I was idly looking up videos on this airport when I came across this. First thought: “Holy crap, how the heck did that happen?!”
Its like those accidents you drive past on the highway that happened on a perfectly clear day in perfect weather, and you wonder if there were unknown extenuating circumstances, or if the accident was just as stupid as it appeared.
Admin edit - I’m going to remove the link to the video simply because it is very disturbing. The rotor blade penetrates the cabin and kills the first officer from what I’ve read. While it is an interesting video, it is pretty horrific. I’m fine with discussing it (or any accident), but if people want to view the video, they will need to go find it. Sorry, but I think its best that way or we get threads with some pretty ugly stuff in them.
