Rock Fall by Helicopter

Helicopters have a lot of applications, but slamming the side of a mountain isn’t one you’d normally think of. In order to prevent the hazard of a rock fall heading down towards the road and pummeling a very unlucky driver, this helicopter takes the proactive approach and induces one.

The helicopter swings a pottery-looking rock attached by a string and, like a wrecking-ball, hits the side of the mountain repeatedly until chunks of rock fall off the mountain. I don’t know why, but watching those rocks tumble down was incredibly hypnotizing. Just when you think it’s over and the helicopter starts flying away, it comes back for more. The bird picks up water from the nearby ocean and releases it over the mountain in order to loosen any other rocks that could prove dangerous. Saving lives and looking awesome, looks like they killed two stones with one bird.
