This is the incredible moment a group of pilots use the skid of their helicopter to open a beer bottle.
As part of the three-day China Helicopter Tournament this weekend, pilots were challenged to open a bottle of beer with their aircraft.
And this crew get it right within seconds, causing the suspended bottle to fizz up as if in celebration.
Each pilot had eight minutes to open five beer bottles in sequence using an opener tied to the helicopter’s skid.
Edging their way forward, this team made very slight movements with the rudder to move the skid up to the bottle and pull the top off.
“The game mainly tests pilot’s manipulation of the helicopter,” competitor Wang Xuefei told Metro.
“We have to let the bottle opener get close to the beer bottle as much as possible.”
The video soon went viral but despite their best efforts, none of the teams managed all five bottles without smashing any, according to reports.
