Watch: Army Helicopter Flies A Little Too Close To Porta Potties

Pure mayhem

You’d think that if you were flying an aircraft with upwards of 3400 pounds of lift around anything that weighs less than a metric tonne, that you’d be careful just how close you get.

Unfortunately that thought didn’t cross the mind of the pilot of this Royal Navy Merlin helicopter in Dartmoor, England. While lifting field guns for a training exercise near a section of porta potties, the downwash from the helicopter was too much for the unoccupied stalls.

What happens next is equal parts hilarious as it is messy. Watch above.
