VIDEOS: How NOT to Escape From A Greek Prison By Helicopter. Last Attempt Last Sunday!
It’s not the first time that an attempt, breaking out of prison by helicopter, has occurred in Greece. Apparently this was the fourth time they tried to free this particular prisoner named Vlastos. The criminals had chartered a helicopter Aerospatiale 355N Ecureuil 2 that carried two armed passengers, a technician and a pilot. They where heavily armed with AK47 assault rifles and carried explosive devices on board the helicopter. When Vlastos tried to escape by climbing the ladder into the helicopter, the guards shot him, he fell and the helicopter went down also. Needless to say, everyone was arrested.
In the first video it actually sounds that you can hear gunfire in the background. You will also get to see when the helicopter is brought down. In the second video you can see a close-up of the helicopter after it was taken down. Details, escape ladder, gunshot damages to windshield, turbine exhaust, fuselage and tail cone, on board weaponry, bullets, surprisingly a visible tail number SX-HJV belonging to aircraft type Aerospatiale 355N Ecureuil 2.
