    :shock: OH NO!! And thats a fatal crash?

    Quick Question: How exactly does a helicopter make turns and climbs like that? I noticed that the rotor sounded different, does it have something to do with that?

    found that:

    It is a Eurocopter BO-105 CBS 4 Twin engine helicopter. It's a stock model with a rigid rotor system, the fixed rotor makes the aerobatics possible.

    There are old pilots. There are bold pilots. There are no old, bold pilots.

    This former pilot unfortunately proved the statement.

    The air is most unforgiving of mistakes.
