What the H!

A confused helicopter pilot made a lot of cricket players VERY confused when he mistook the “H” painted on a corner of the field and landed during a match. The game on Saturday was delayed when the hapless pilot suddenly landed his craft scattering the players and disrupting the game.

“It landed suddenly. No one knew what was happening,” the competing Punjab team manager told the paper after his side won the interrupted game. “There was chaos. Everyone ran for cover.”

The home team, Himachal Pradesh have a large “H” painted on the field representing their team and the pilot saw it and assumed he was at his helicopter landing pad. A nearby fire also disoriented the pilot who “misinterpreted it for smoke signals.”

The game was stopped for about 30 minutes before the very embarrassed pilot took off once more and peaced out.

I for one find it reassuring to have the pilot of my helicopter unable to distinguish landing fields and particularly unable to notice a group of people playing CRICKET while he is landing the craft. Not to mention someone who thinks that there are SMOKE SIGNALS being used to relay information. What is it 1834? Helicopters are a ridiculous flying machine, I’m sure it’s comforting to have your pilot so aware of the situations around him.

Helicopter Fishing, the New Rage!

Something about this video clip is fishy to me, but it’s pretty neat regardless. Take one part man in helicopter, add one part marlin in the ocean, have man jump from helicopter and catch said marlin with barehands, bake for one hour.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The only real question I have is how they had the camera in the water ready to get the man get the marlin. Did the camera guy jump out of the helicopter too or is this like on a reality show when they show someone getting a phonecall and the other person happens to have a camera crew there filming when the phone rings? Whatevs, there has to be an easier way to catch fish though
