In-car camera captured the last moments of an AH-64E Apache helicopter which crashed into a residential builiding in Taoyuan County, Taiwan.

On Apr. 25, at 10.05LT, a Republic of China Army Aviation AH-64E belonging to the 601st Air Cavalry Brigade crashed into a residential building in Taoyuan county, in southeast Taiwan.

The combat chopper, coded 808, was flown by Major Chen Long Qian (1247 flying hours) with co-pilot Lt. Col. Liu Ming Hui (1034 flying hours). Both pilots escaped the incident with minor injuries.

The video briefly shows the helicopter flying in poor visibility, in an unusual attitude (maybe it hit something?), moments before the crash landing the building.
