Unfortunately, that's almost certainly exactly what it was.

Film star Vic Morrow died the same way whilst filming 'Twilight Zone-The Movie' back in July 1982.

Some years ago a parachutist landed on top of a helicopter with the blades turning and was chopped up. Molto ewwwww!

I believe that was Halfpenny Green (at least, that was the incident that I had heard of...late eighties or early nineties).

There was another (alleged) incident involving a new R22 pilot and his young daughter, which if true is very sad.

There was indeed such an event at Thruxton which caused the closure of the parachute centre there. I did my first few jumps with them in 83/84.
