    Why can't the pilots just slam their stricken craft into the nearest structure? Seeing all that mangled metal on fire would at least get a lot more shares on YouTube...😆

          IF you are lost at sea do you just clean your ass in the salt water?

            Too much fuel entering the turbine and extreme burnoff caused all the smoke. Similar to a copter hot start during starting. Bet that copter needed a whole new engine.

              That was one hell of a pilot that landed aft on that ship in such heavy seas with the deck pitching up and down like that. Insane...

                  most of them are just 'shitty' landings not emergency landings

                        We had a Life Flight chopper go down about 1/2 mile from me. It went in for it's landing at the helipad, diverted it's landing, then tried to circle around again. It went down in a non populated area one block away from it's destination. It caught fire. The receiving medical team rushed to help them. Two on board died immediately, one died after receiving life threatening burns, and the pilot survived. It was one of the most tragic experiences I have ever witnessed. Something you just never forget.

                              In the early 1960s, my dad survived a crash landing of a CH-47 Chinook in the US Army, 101st Airborne. It couldn't hover due to mechanical failure, so the pilot had to glide down like a plane into a corn field. My dad still regrets not shaking the pilot's hand for saving all their lives.
                              Helicopter crash survivors...that's a small club, isn't it?

First two are botched landings/crashes, the helos had no problem and were trashed by the pilot. 3rd one is an emergency landing, 4th one is a successful landing, no emergency, and 5th one is an emergency landing. So 2 out of 5 are in line with the video title.
