This Is the Weirdest, Most Hilarious Helicopter Accident I've Ever Seen

Nobody was injured in this weird weird WEIRD helicopter accident, so you can laugh away from minute one. I feel sorry for the people getting shaken so badly, but it is hilarious.

It happened last Wednesday in Para, Brazil. I'm sure some of our readers would be able to explain why this thing started to shake so badly after landing, because I have absolutely no clue.

This is referred to as ground resonance, and involves an odd circumstance where the helicopter's vibrations feedback to itself from the ground until the point where the engine fails, usually through severe damage caused from the resonance. The proper way to handle this circumstance is to liftoff immediately. See this clip from a MacGyver episode where a quick pilot recognized and prevented a similar occurrence from happening.
