This is exactly what we are trying to put a stop to in our hobby. This sort of thing, even if it was a show, put on by all people present, is extremely dangerous.

If you belong to the AMA, flying over people is frowned upon or completely banned. If anything happened to that chopper, and it hit someone, we'd have a very different bit of news coverage.

Note that apparently the pilot was using what appears to be a 72 Mhz radio. Those radios can be hit by someone else on the same channel.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
