Man oh man, you just never know if your nice little outing at the lake with your significant other is about to be interrupted by quite the intense, entirely surprising helicopter flyby. Could always look at it as a free air show.

It's rare to see a helicopter crash go so well. It's also refreshing and sort of nice to see something like this go down with a total lack of screaming or towering infernos. Yeah, it would be real scary to just drop out of the sky, but also this crash landing went more smoothly than some regular commercial airline flights we've been on.

The Kamov Ka 52 helicopter ejection system sounds more like some Rube Goldberg, Wile E. Coyote nonsense, but low and behold, it was the first helicopter designed to have an ejection seat. The system even blows up the spinning blades just before firing off. Granted it's a lot better than launching a pilot straight into a blender, the engineering involved in shooting someone out of a helicopter is... a lot.

Those boys were just out having a nice cheeky hour flying their planes when all of a sudden an Apache Attack helicopter showed up to completely change their day, and maybe their lives. You've got to appreciate the genuine level of unhinged enthusiasm that these guys brought to the table when the helicopter showed up. Certainly don't see that every day.

After fishing the donated heart from the wreckage of a non-fatal helicopter crash, firefighters handed off the thing to a waiting medical professional. Almost immediately, the staff member tripped and dropped the human heart on the ground. Doctors were still able to successfully transplant the heart, so other than that it went pretty well.

This helicopter pilot's got mad skills. Apparently the pilot took the initiative to put the fire out before backup arrived, and managed to accomplish the mission with all that pool water.

Woman Catches Stalker-ey Helicopter Mom Peeping Through Her Window

It's good that parents are interested in the safety of their children, but holy crap this is some whack-ass behavior. This lady was caught leering like a ghoul through the window of her son's friend's house because she hadn't seen him in a few hours. Reminds us of this hyper-controlling helicopter mom who wanted to track her kid at college.

Hyper Controlling Mom Wants To Track Kid At College

With all the stuff we've heard of and experienced with helicopter parents in the last few decades, it's refreshing to see someone actually stand up to their mom who's trying to control their social life while not under their roof. Hell, dude, it's college. You don't want to experience college life while your mom watches.

Controlling mom wants guy to install tracking app, he doesn't.

Apparently this can happen when someone is being rescued by helicopter? This 74 year old woman is said to be in stable condition. Seriously, this is terrifying. This is like the kind of crap they make you do in astronaut training.

Things got a little explosive when these Russian war games didn't go according to plan.

Footage of a Helicopter Blades Synced Up with Camera Frame Rate is Amazing

What's cooler than a helicopter? A helicopter with static blades. 

On Twitter, people are sharing video footage of what happens when you sync camera frame rate with the speed of helicopter blades, and you can see why. Watching a helicopter just float into the air is strangely satisfying and very, very cool. 

Check out some of the footage below.

A haircut, helicopter ride, playing fetch, tobogganing, swimming, and fist bumping are all in a day's work for Mr. Bentley. Must be nice!
