I remember we got a lift in a British Royal Marines Sea King on an excercise once and the last words from the crew was "... and if we happen to go down, boys, it's every man for himself..."
Then they flew low and fast and there was much sweating and probably not a few prayers being offered silently...
I suspect they did it a bit on purpose..

Bad things happen when just about anything goes wrong with a chopper. It's a giant, spinning blade with a passenger compartment. What could possibly go wrong?

I went on a helicopter tour many years ago of the grand canyon, it was the same company that had a crash a couple years ago. Likewise the whole time my palms were sweating but it was a once in a lifetime experience I am glad that I had the opportunity to take.
