Most of the time it seems like that our little planet might not seem like it but this world can still be a magical place; just like a Disney movie. We think that a certain helicopter pilot named Dan Alpiner would totally agree with our view on this.
A couple of days ago, Dan Alpiner was en-route to the Creek Fire occurring in the state of California on his helicopter. He was flying there to fight off against the massive wilderness fire in the area and it was then an unexpected visitor greeted him.
Dan was flying his helicopter about 200 above the ground level when a majestic creature laded on the seat of the helicopter right next to him.
Dan was above about 200 feet from the ground and was about to unleash a massive bucket of water stored in the helicopter over the fire when a stunning owl entered casually inside his helicopter. The owl simply sat down on the seat next to Dan.
Dan told media, “I saw a little flutter from the corner of my eye. I was poked and looked over and then we locked our eyes. He was kind of chilling there.”
The owl remained on the seat inside the helicopter for 2 more refilling and drops. After that he simple flew out as he flew in.
Dan told media that the owl stayed inside the helicopter for 2 more refilling and drops and after that it flew out of the window. He flew out at the spot not far from where it was earlier when it flew in. Dan says, “I am still trying to understand all of this. It was simply unreal to me. This was that once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.”
Dan says that he is still trying to comprehend this as it was simply unreal.
On the Facebook page of Sky Aviation, they posted the photo captured by Dan of this majestic owl. They wrote in the post, “It is an unheard of an event for an owl or even any other bird to enter inside a help when in-flight. This is an unexplainable and a magical miracle for the owl to remain inside the helo for refilling and drops and then simply leaving unannounced and safe.”
The Creek Fire is the active large fire that started in start of the September near California’s Shaver Lake. The fire has already razed an area of about 352,339 acres. So far, 61 percent of the fire has been contained. The Creek Fire, apparently, happens to be the 5th largest and the single largest wildfire in the modern history of California.
