A thrill seeking motorcyclist has been caught riding underneath a helicopter that was flying just nine foot off the ground.

The helicopter was between six to nine feet from the ground when Shumail Bukhari, 32, decided to drive underneath it.

Shumail, from Quetta, Pakistan, was heading towards the Gwadar with Pakistan Motor Rally, on October 30 when the unplanned stunt took place.

It was a random daredevil act for Shumail who claims it was a once in a life time experience.

Thankfully he captured the stunt on his mobile phone to share with those at the rally.

Shumail,  who works for the government, said: “It was random stunt, I started chasing the low flying helicopter on my motorbike just for fun.

“I have no idea why it was flying so low, I assume the pilot saw me the moment I crossed him underneath because he lifted it up as soon as I overtook him.

“It was definitely once in a lifetime experience, when I overtook it I felt intense air pressure on my shoulders, the sensation and the satisfaction after that stunt cannot be described.”

At first, Shumail thought his stunt seemed impossible as the helicopter was only six to nine feet off the road.

He said: “My adrenaline hungry instincts told me to try it and within seconds of making the decision, I was under the helicopter.

“I knew I might not get a chance like this my whole life.

“I held my phone flat so I could capture the helicopter properly and the moment I crossed it I started changing the angle of my phone because I wanted to capture the road as well.

“I told a friend about the whole thing on next fueling stop and almost everyone knew about it by the time we reached the motor rally.

“Many people have told me to start stunting for action movies, I would love to push my limits in the future again.”
