Here is a short video of a way not to tow a boat.

The dummy pulled too much power and drooped the rotor. Notice how the helicopter yawed abruptly before it crashed. He probably would have made it if he took it easy and took his time. Still a really dumb thing to try. A Bell Jet Ranger does not have the shp. to lift much more than itself and a few passengers; at least that model.

That rope was about 400 feet too short to give the helicopter any room to adjust too.

You'd think the insurance company would have to refuse to pay on grounds of stupidity.

I wonder if the pilot was a Darwin award winner, or just a nominee?

i wonder if the helicopter folks were ok? they were pretty close so not much impact.. good thing it did not go backwards and cut the boat in 2 with its blades..
