Horrifying video of a ABC chopper losing control over Sydney Harbour in 1966 whilst obtaining footage for an ABC TV show including aerials of Sydney's CBD.

The chopper tried to land on the top of the AMP Building, then lost control before hitting the top of Goldfields House and then crashing onto the roof of the Rugby Club in George St killing both on board instantly

That is like being inside of someone elses head on a really bad acid trip.

Aside from the incident itself, there is something very disturbing about the clip. The way it's shot, the spiral when it crashes, the footage of it falling (?), and the music, which has been added on post production (the music contrasts the footage as being quite chirpy.

It's like watching the video in The Ring.

It's shocking how suddenly it starts falling! Really gave me a jolt. I'd never heard about this crash before!

Gotta say, the Opera House under construction looks incredible.

It lost the tail rotor. Three were killed, the pilot, the cameraman (whi kept the camera running throughout) and a female journalist.

Putting oddly inappropriate music to unpleasant clips seems to be a Youtube hallmark.

Interesting with the sound off though.
