The retired US military helicopter, an AH1 Cobra, was being used to film a speeding Corvette in Coolidge Airport, Arizona, on March 1 when the pilot lost control at about 60m altitude, My Fox reports. Local resident Steve Esparza, who was filming the helicopter with a home video camera, said his "heart was pounding" when he realised it was about to crash on the main runway. "I think the thing that shook me up the most was, I thought the pilots were dead — I turned the camera off, I didn't want to roll on what I thought I was about to see," he said. Both pilots, from the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation, were treated by paramedics at the scene and were able to walk away from the accident. Coolidge Police Chief Joe Brugman said the helicopter's safety gear saved the pilots' lives. "They were strapped in wearing harnesses and helmets," he said. Police department spokesman Roger Stinson said the helicopter had been taking part in filming of an episode of Top Gear Korea when it crashed. The film crew has not spoken about the accident. He said initial reports indicate the crash was caused by a mechanical failure but authorities are still investigating.
