The helicopter turns upside down and performs a backflip, with pilots Aaron and Chris pulling it back at the last minute while the helicopter rushes to the ground.

It then corrects itself and flies away.

& # 39; For every type of aerobatics performed by helicopter, a very highly skilled pilot is needed & # 39 ;, said Mr. Ivarson who filmed the footage.

It is considered very dangerous to fly a helicopter upside down.

Rotors can bend in the direction of the slides and cut the tail, putting passengers and pilots at risk of falling dead.

Rolling is a performance that only a few modern choppers can perform and even then they can only be upside down for a few moments.

Older machines do not have the ability or rotor technology to turn rollers into an aerobatic option.

Organized at Ankeny Regional Airport every August, the Central Iowa Airshow is billed as the Midwest's premier family aviation event and promises, breathtaking and breathtaking performances.

The helicopter corrects itself close to the ground. Another pilot, Wayne Ivarson, filmed the scene from a helicopter that flew nearby
