A helicopter closely chases a race car in this truly insane stunt

You see the word insane get thrown around on the Internet a lot. It’s a good word! But few things actually deserve the word insane. This stunt does though. Felix Baumgartner (the dude who jumped from space) pilots a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter that is basically having a movie car chase scene with a race car and forgot he was piloting a helicopter and not driving a car.

The chopper and the car get so ridiculously close to each other so many times that you can’t help but squeal. Insane.

Up till 2:00 it looks like mostly telephoto lens compression... yeah, he’s doing really low fast nimble flying, but they’re not as close as they look.

After that... holy crap, okay, he’s crazy. Skilled. Crazy skilled. Crazy and skilled.
