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!

I wonder if that bird will ever fly again or how much they can salvage out of 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)
