Video from the destroyer, USS Cushing, on station in the Northern Arabian (some call it Persian) Gulf, during the crash on 5/02, July of the "Desert Duck" helo.  Miraculously, all 7 "souls" onboard were recovered, although two were injured seriously enough to warrant a medevac (by helo!) to Bahrain. Note how the tail rotor seems to seize or stop right at the wrong time during the approach, causing the body of the helo to rotate out of control.  Kinda makes those "reality-based" TV shows like "Survivor" pale in comparison....
