    There must have been more room between the trees than it appears.

    Room or no room flying backwards in a confined space is not for the faint at heart or the inexperienced pilot.
    I understand his reason for doing it. It got the rotor wash out of the area in the quickest manor possible
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I wonder if they teach that in traffic helicopter school?
    Looks more like something a Vietnam dust off pilot would do.

    you are exactly correct back out under the canopy stay near the water, follow the river keeping low then once far enough away leap into the air at max rise,

    Cool! Apart from the excellent skill of the pilot, I was wondering if they were birch trees on the bank?===just wondering (not common here but tropical ones are much smaller that i've seen).

    cheers
