Prob. didn't take into factor that the air up in the mountains provides less lift. Chopper was doing what it was told to do... pilot error.

Maverick (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000129/): Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby.
Air Boss Johnson (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0835146/): Negative, Ghost Rider, the pattern is full.


Two of your snot-nose jockeys did a fly-by on my tower at over 400 KNOTS! I want somebody's butt, I want it now, I've HAD IT!

Goose (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000381/): The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid.

Not to worry the aviators are in very deep shit and are probably on there way out of the service. Command does not have sense of forgiveness when a machine is destroyed by the aviators negligence.
