Remark Photographer
8436 (cn V65-034) This Sikorsky CH-53G crashed on November 28, 2008 near the "Graustock" mountain (2600 meter above sea level). Happily all member of the crew are still alive. I was waiting for weeks for good weather conditions and I was walking for over 6 hours to get this picture. I hope you all like it!

Reminds me the film The Day After Tomorrow in which a chopper freezes in the air and crashed into snowy ground. Not quite sure but I think the type of chopper is the same as the one in the film! (Ali Aminzadeh)

Helicopter Crash by member September11
Helicopters are classified as rotorcraft or rotary-wing aircraft to distinguish them from fixed-wing aircraft because the helicopter achieves lift with the rotor blades which rotate around a mast.
