Skip to comments.Phoenix - Two helicopters crash while covering chase

Two television news helicopters covering a police pursuit crashed and burned in a central Phoenix park, killing at least two people. Watch for reports throughout the day. A KTVK T-V anchor tearfully told viewers that one of the helicopters was theirs, and that the pilot and photographer aboard were killed. KNXV-TV said the other helciopter was theirs.
Who cares? These people are nothing more than ambulance chasers. Call John Edwards, take two aspirin, and call me in the morning. Then, pay 500 US fiat dollars for the advise. Screw them and anyone that believes this c04p. Get a life, people!!!!!!
Obviously many people care. Myself included. If you don’t care don’t click on the thread and by god don’t even bother to waste our time and write something.
Yeah - I know what you mean. So what did you do while you were out there on the crash crew picking up body parts?
LOL - almost as boorish as framing your comments, and avoiding the question. So, what did you do? I worked crash recovery and investigation for ten years while I was a jet engine mechanic. I worked fatal and non-fatal crashes, picked up pieces parts, and dealt with it by laughing about it, being glad it wasn’t me, and figuring out what caused it so we could do what we could do to prevent it from happening again.
So, what did you do?
Dramatic audio from a 3rd chopper pilot:
Watch it before they edit it!
This is a classic case of not seeing the forest for the trees.
GOD is spelled with a capital “G” Go watch “survivor” or some other sheep crap and not post here.
When I was a kid I thought he was cool. As an adult, not so much.
I’m sure his drug arrest didn’t help any either.
where is jerry now? i don’t remember the drug arrest, but i do remember him getting grounded or suspended
That statement is a projection of your imagination. There is NO "sparring competition" in the air between helicopter news crews. Trust me.
(Response deleted so that I won’t get thrown off this board.)
Except what I mentioned above, which involved a personality issue, I have always really liked the news helicopter pilots in Phoenix. Some of the best stories have been about some of the pilots who decided to help out when someone was lost and end up being the rescuer.
I have a hard time with any statement that begins with those four words.
Not likely, but if a news chopper had run into a police chopper tracking the suspect I wonder what kind of heat we might see.
