THEY were supposed to be filming a speeding Corvette, but instead two pilots from Top Gear Korea's film crew found themselves careering towards the ground as they lost control of their helicopter.
Captured on camera by local man Steve Esparaza, the chopper is seen nosediving before smashing into the ground.
"I think the thing that shook me up the most was, I thought the pilots were dead. I turned the camera off... I didn't want to roll on what I thought I was about to see."
But, incredibly, the pilots were able to walk away from the crash - even remembering to turn off the engine.
