James Bond Pilot Killed In Horrific Helicopter Crash!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm FlickersSad Sad

Helicopters fly overhead in major cities all the time. Having one crash on a busy street during rush hour is a nightmare few of us care to ponder.

Unfortunately, that's what happened in London Wednesday morning. A helicopter hit a crane atop a building, causing it to plummet to the pavement below.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) for a home video of the fiery aftermath of the horrific ordeal.

Pilot Peter Barnes, a skilled Hollywood pilot whose moves are on display in the films Die Another Day and Saving Private Ryan, was killed, along with one pedestrian on the street below. One more pedestrian suffered critical injuries.

Thankfully, though there were other injuries, everyone else was easily treated with minor cuts and bruises.

Police Commander Neil Basu points out there could easily have been many more casualties. He says:

"It was something of a miracle that this was not many, many times worse."

We know those that lost loved ones don't think it could have been worse, and we offer our condolences on their loss.

But we also know the other thousands of people who pass over that stretch of road every day are thanking their lucky stars today!

    OMFG this is out of control. Something needs to be done. We need more Helicopter control. There is no reason to own this type of machine.

    I am so saddened by this. I was actually in a helicopter crash over the streets of Dallas during rush hour. (I'm a traffic reporter and now report from the ground only.) I am very, very lucky to be alive. My heart and love go out to the family of the pilot and the people on the street.
