There is no damage being reported to the chopper.

  1. #1 Because it was apparantly not scheduoled to have landed there.

    But the heading says it was a “hard landing”, wrong.
    It was as beautiful a soft landing as any aircraft I have ever seen make any landing.
    Ok the wind from the rotors have have knocked a few twigs off a few trees becaue they came in a bit too close over the trees, but the landing itself was perfect, from what I saw in the video.

  2. Surprisingly, the “civilians” in the park did not attack the soldiers with sharp metal objects, steel bars, and try to grab their weapons forcing the soldiers to protect themselves. this “restraint” led to a peaceful resolution and no loss of life.
