Plane hits cam at Alpine Ski Championship

Fri Feb 17, 2017 12:28 pm

An air acrobatics plane just hit a camera rope at the Alpine Ski World Champs in Sankt Moritz, Switzerland. Apparently nothing happened to the plane, but the rope was cut through - and the camera just missed the audience...

Seems the acrobatics Team was way too low...

The pilot is very fortunate that guidewire didn't bring the plane down! It seems the camera was pretty high up
