Helicopter crashes on Top Gear Korea set while chasing Corvette ZR1Mon, 11 Feb 2013
Something like that was undoubtedly what the Korean producers were after when they lined up this segment – a drag race between a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and an AH1 Cobra military helicopter. The planners almost certainly did not expect the filming of the segment to go quite as wrong as it actually did, with the helicopter actually crashing into the dirt after the "drag race" had been completed. Thankfully, we're told that no one was seriously injured in the crash, but the footage, in the video below, is pretty damn chilling to watch, nevertheless.
