Blimey.

Oops. Now they just need a few gazzilion views on youtube to recover the costs. :roll:

You wouldn't get that on Top Gear UK, Health and Safety gone mad! :D

Seriously though, that could have been nasty.

Procrastination Man will be with you in a minute...

Thats possibly going to be one of the more expensive episodes of that series.

:shock: That's gonna leave a mark.

Am I missing something here? Shirley the production team won't be held responsable for what appears to be pilot error?

I believe Mark Hales has been instructed to pay out.

Nah, it'll be covered by insurance.

It's the next episode which'll cost them, when the insurance for low flying Cobras has gone up a few quid.

Cobra failed. Cobra must die...

+ Non-limited edition of the Exige 240R
- Uninspiring soundtrack

A classic low height accident. Over-banked and even before reaching the apex of the wing-over the nose is coming down through the horizon. It was doomed to failure as soon as he tried to continue the turn and pull rather than rolling wings level and then pulling up. He was also in a high rate of descent at low speed so may well have started to enter a condition known as vortex ring where the helicopter is effectively descending into it's own down-wash. This creates a rapid loss of lift and control - it's a real problem because the conditions for it inevitably occur close to the ground

Toyota. Flat Cap. Grey Slacks. Slipons. Slower than everyone.

Hats off to the Koreans, that's some incredible Hollywood special effects, none of that half arsed crap we get here. Is this the first of a new series that they're doing for Korea?

How about not having a sig at all?

Kncok-off of a knock-off - they did that (without the crash) in the only episode of US Top Gear I watched.

At least we now know what "oh fvck" sounds like in Korean :lol:

And no one got seriously hurt, which is good - poor cameramen scattering as it crashes behind them.

The first thing I though was vortex ring, it became unresponsive which is typical, or from black out but we don't see a high g manoeuvre

In the subsequent interview the pilot confirmed his ring had performed a vortex during the crash.

:lol: no doubt!

It must be highly embarrasing for the pilot when essentially he was just arsing around/showing off.
