This bird had a night rating and a instrument rating but clearly it's TCAS wasn't working :lol:

The damage isn't too bad, a small dent :yikes: thankfully.

Kompos, guys are finding new and unusual places to put their GoPro cameras. I think there is a video of this so will dig around for you. Fascinating to see how a sling rope "flies" beneath a chopper :thinking:
