    It is in reference to this thread from here a while ago. We had some fun commenting about the 59 second gif.

    There is a thread a few weeks back that has a video of a guy doing a sixty second video clip on the basic 'how to fly a helicopter'.

    the Crash avoidance by the pilot was 2 things first extreme flying skills employed and 2 a real brown shorts moment for everyone in the chopper. From the way the sudden gust of wind got under air frame from the back side of the knoll as the pilot was attempting a landing was almost like what happened a while back to a air ambulance trying to land in a parking lot in a town not far from where I am the wife and I watched the guy make 4 attempts being blown halfway across the empty parking lot before there was a slight lull and he managed to get it on the ground long enough for a stretcher to be loaded
