    I do like these bulletproof, indestructible, go-anywhere do-anything workhorses, there isn't another like it!

    Yup, them Russians sure know how to build their Mil Mi-8 helicopters.

    I have to say the Lada, which James May arranged to have dropped, appears to have fared rather better. :D

    No doubt the stunt was intended to create attention... but call me suspicious... but what if the helicopter landed again after taking off with the G63, then took off again carrying a different vehicle - maybe a much older GL of he same colour, or even an insurance write-off - and that was the vehicle that was subsequently dropped?
