In the hands of a master, an excavator is a sight to behold. An expert driver can do amazing things with a digger, such as lighting a cigarette, loading the digger on a truck without a lift, and extracting himself from a deep ditch. These pilots have skills worthy of great respect.
But not this guy.
Short of someone dying--which thankfully did not appear to happen--it would have been impossible for this stunt to have a worse outcome.
