Lost Helicopter Lands On The Highway To Ask For Directions And Now I’ve Seen Everything!

The world we live in is a place full of oddities. While some borders on the line of bizarreness, few make their way into headlines and in this case highways. Let me rephrase that for you. What would you do if you a see a helicopter right in the middle of a highway? Not cars or trucks or trolleys whoosing away, but a MILITARY HELICOPTER in what seems like a snow blizzard?
Well, you shoot! That’s exactly what people in Kazakhstan did when they sighted an Mi-8 gunship (a rocket/arms carrier). In this video uploaded by Zello Kaz, a truck convoy was blocked by the helicopter that had a trainee pilot come out of it, to ask for directions. Yes, you heard that right. The drivers who probably taped the man who was lost, can be even heard laughing at the out-of-the-blue occurrence.
“He came to ask which way to Aktobe,” says one voice trying to control his laughter. Another muffled voice added,  “How can you get lost in the steppe? How the hell can you get lost in the steppe?”
As soon as the video surfaced on the social media and went viral, Kazakhstan Ministry of Defense has laid out a statement claiming that it was a “planned visual orienteering exercise,” in which trainee pilots were told to determine their location “including by means of human survey.”
