An alarming incident occurred during the filming of "Top Gear Korea" when a helicopter, an AH-1 Cobra, crashed while filming a segment involving a race between a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the helicopter itself. The accident, captured on camera, happened after the Corvette had crossed the finish line, and the helicopter pilot was attempting to execute a U-turn but made contact with the ground, leading to the crash.

The incident took place in Arizona in 2012 and was part of a stunt for the Korean version of the popular automotive television show "Top Gear." Fortunately, despite the severity of the crash, which resulted in the helicopter breaking up upon impact with the ground, there were no serious injuries reported from the incident.

An investigation into the crash revealed no signs of mechanical failure in the helicopter. This suggests that the crash may have been the result of pilot error or other factors unrelated to the helicopter's mechanical condition. The segment was being filmed for "Top Gear South Korea," a version of the British motoring show adapted for a South Korean audience.

This is a fake video.... I've never seen an Asian driver go over 35mph and his left turn signal wasn't on for no reason for the last 5 miles
