    Smile Helicopter Mi-8 takes rpg hit and continues to fly!

    Was browsing about when i found this that i had to watch it twice to believe it. A russian made mi-8 was flying when it took a hit in mid air. Unlike in the movies, it continued to fly! http://www.thevideostreams.com/milit...tinues-flying/

    Looks like the rotors were not damaged. Perhaps the RPG hit one of the engines. A similar helicopter was shot down in Ukraine by a manpad.
