Apache pilot “screws the pooch” in Afghanistan

This video is supposed to be viral, but I’m seeing it for the first time now. Ouch.

According to the video description;

AH-64 Apache helicopter crash in Sharana, Afghanistan. The pilot was executing a maneuver known as “return to target”. No one on the ground was killed and both pilots survived, possible criminal charges were laid.

Well, that’s $38 million shot. Looks like he almost pulled it off, but then pulled up too sharp and smacked the tail rotor on that little hill and that was all she wrote.
