For anyone that has ever flown a helicopter, that landing was unbelievable. Flying a helicopter is very similar to balancing a beach ball on a broom handle. And then, (like in this video) imagine doing it with half your controls out of commision.

Impressive piloting!

They have to make a landing like that generally when there is a loss of tailrotor control,,, they have to keep enough forward speed so the main rotor doenst cause it to just spin on its own axis,,, and as you can see,,, makes landing interesting !!!!!

Great job I say !!!!!
