This week, Chinese helicopter pilots participated in a 3-day tournament to show off their skills and see who’s “the best of the best.” The final competition involved strapping a bottle opener to the helicopter’s skid and having these pilots open a beer. You have to open the beer without damaging the bottle.
This is an annual competition that tests pilots’ skills in 6 different events. This final event, the beer opener event, challenges pilots to open 5 bottles within 8 minutes. The best pilots opened 4 bottles. No one got 5.
The pilot in this video nails the move, but ends up breaking the lip of the bottle resulting in a disqualification.
As a skier or snowboarder, you gotta love this. Now, helicopters are key to your two favorite activities: sliding on snow & drinking beer.
