Video of a helicopter taking off took the internet by storm, with many freaking out in disbelief.

The clip shows a chopper lifting from the platform at the harbor but there’s something strange about the flight.

Shockingly, the rotors are not turning at all…
But despite that, the aircraft seems to be climbing steadily.

But everything was just a mind-bending trick!

The video was made by recording the helicopter at a frame rate the same as the tuning of the rotor blades. And thus the effects make it look like the rotor is not turning on the viewers’ perspective.

The mind-boggling camera trick has gone viral online with one viewer commenting “That IS freaky”.

While others say, “Haha that’s kind of creepy” and “That is so freakin cool.”
