This is from the “oldie but a goodie” collection. Uploaded to YouTube a year ago, this cracking video shows a helicopter pilot rescue a crashed remote control plane for a young boy – plucking it right from the treetops!

Watch the whole video and you’ll hear that the pilot witnessed the plane crash into the treetops, and realises he can probably swing round and try to get it.

It seems dangerous, and probably was! But he also at all times is checking his rear rotor and clearance.

After rescuing the plane it is returned to the young boy and his family, who, as the pilot points out – probably couldn’t believe what they were seeing!
