Top Gear Korea helicopter crash

In February 2013 a helicopter crashed on the set of Top Gear Korea in America. The Cobra AH-1 was racing against a Corvette ZR-1, driven by one of the hosts, when it lost altitude and crashed into the grounds next to the race track. No one was injured in the incident. The show was filming a segment revolving around Corvette ZR-1, with a host of the show first doing a power test of the car in the desert of Arizone before racing the helicopter around a makeshift race track at an airport nearby.
