A waiting period would have prevented that.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Preflight checklist:

1) Prior to starting helicopter, remove head from anus.

Back when I was an A&P mechanic, one place I worked at was at King County Airport near Seattle.  The local medi-vac helicopter company shared a hangar and ramp space with one of the TV station news choppers.  I witnesses several scenarios that came within a few feet of the same thing.  One day a news chopped came in in a hurry and almost landed on top of a medical chopper that was taxiing out with a patient onboard.  Missed by about ten feet.  One of the med chopper mechanics was taxiing one of their aircraft to their maintenance hangar, turned a corner too close and chewed the corner off a neighboring hangar with the main rotor.

The expression "$4it" happens was invented for helicopters.

A life undreamed is a waste.  A dream unlived is a sin.

I think that should be "pre landing" checklist rather than " pre takeoff"


1) Check Area Clear
2) Leave enough room
3) Land

Wow! The second pilot should lose his license for being so damned stupid. Obviously, the crew prepping the chopper on the ground placed it in the wrong position and there was no room to land as normal, the pilot should have been aware of this and either waited or landed with one skid on the grass.

The video would have been more complete with a NASCAR style slugfest between the pilots.  :(

I think most of that will buff out.....

Look at the bright side, if it does NOT buff out, two more sales for some helicopter manufacturer. My mother always used to say "It is an ill wind that does not blow someone some good.". There should also be some added work for the people who paint the numbers on the tarmac, for the paint mgf. and supplier ('cause those numbers have to be bigger, obviously), training time for helicopter pilot instructors, helicopter maintenance people instructors, etc., etc. ad nauseum. And it all goes into the US GDP bottom line.... so I, for one, say 'Well done, Pasadena Police, for providing this unexpected and gratuitous boost to the American economy!'.
