Helicopter pilot saves deer


Recommended Posts




There's the video. I feel bad for the deer (looks to be a yearling doe) but damn that was funny watching it glide over the ice like a big airhockey puck.

I saw that on the news this morning. My spousal unit was wondering how the deer was sliding across the ice. I told hew it was from rotor downwash. Big mistake. She didn't understand that the wind goes across the ground after it hits the ground. It's like trying to explain something like the windmill brake effect.


But doncha know I really love her.
