Helicopter flight takes far more skill than fixed wing. Add in night conditions, poor weather, enemy threats, close ship formation, very low altitudes... and you've made it 100x harder. And then add in emergencies such as LTE (loss of tailrotor thrust) or any emergency requiring an autorotation, and airplanes look far more easier. Hell, a fighter has an ejection seat. Like it or not, in a helicopter you're strapped in for the ride!

Mach 2 at 35000 feet may be fast, but doing 150 knots at 50 feet is way faster!

So I believe that unless you are an F-111 guy, you probably never see anything like that.
