An unlucky paraglider crashed into a tree straight from take-off, getting stuck in the branches.

Blackhawk pilot Mark Huneycutt, 27, had just started his flight when he flew straight into a pine tree after miscalculating the distances.

The accident occurred in South Korea, where Mark is based, earlier in April.

Despite being stuck between the tree branches for several minutes, the pilot was fortunately unharmed and able to unwrap his glider from around the tree.

Mark said: “I did not have any injuries apart some minor scratches.

“Fortunately, I landed into the tree feet-first and kind of just hung there.”
