Compare the Statement of the Pilot to what you see in the video....very carefully.

I find the commentary about the Wind Conditions to be interesting especially with the presence of a visual wind indicator (the US Flag flying on the nearby Flag Pole).

It seems interesting that after sensing the onset of LTE (using the pilot's own words), he then tries to land in the same direction a second time.

Mind you....he was in an empty helicopter that was full of fuel and him being the only occupant.
