Helicopter Accident on Greenpeace ship


In bad weather an Enstrom 480B helicopter tries to take off from the heli pad of a Greenpeace ship. The takeoff went wrong, the tail hit the ground, almost killing a deck crewman.

One of the deck straps has not been released correctly, with what was very nearly disastrous consequence. Pilot skill and quick thinking saved the day.
