Hailing all the way from October last year, this YouTube video should have way more views than it does right now. In it, a helicopter pilot and his pal are just, you know, flying around looking at the scenery.

And what’s a good helicopter pilot to do when he sees a kid fly his RC plane into the treetops? Go down and get it, of course. 5-minutes of feel-good footage, right here, folks. You might just want to turn down the volume because, it turns it, pilots swear like sailors on radio comms.
