Trump Helicopter Crashes Tail Rotor While Trying to Land in Manhattan

Trump helicopter crash in New York

One of President Donald Trump’s personal helicopters crashed it’s tail rotor in New York last month, and no one knew about it.

The helicopters tail rotor hit a fence while landing at Manhattan’s West Side Heliport along the Hudson River on June 15 and was completely sheared off.

The helicopter was grounded and hauled away by a crane for repairs. No one was injured in the incident.

More interestingly, pictures show the “Trump” name was covered up by helipad workers to apparently avoid embarrassing the president.

It’s unclear who was on the helicopter at the time.


Page Six reports:

One of President Trump’s beloved personal helicopters was involved in an accident last month in Manhattan, but the details are being kept strictly under wraps, Page Six has exclusively learned.

On June 15, a Trump chopper was involved in a crunch in Manhattan when its tail rotor hit a fence upon landing at the West Side Heliport alongside the Hudson River. Photos seen by Page Six appear to show that the rotor was completely sheared off.

Witnesses say damage to the aircraft was enough to completely ground it, and it had to be hauled away for repairs.

But first — and most importantly — helipad workers taped up the stricken chopper to completely obscure the word “Trump” and avoid embarrassment for the president over his incapacitated copter.

One witness said, “This accident was the result of a bad landing. The helicopter’s tail rotor hit the fence and came off. It is not believed anyone was hurt. But the first concern was to tape up the helicopter so nobody could see it was Trump’s as it was lifted up and out by crane.”

The president must travel on Air Force One and Marine One, but his family members still use his personal helicopters when he isn’t with them.
