Taking a road trip down the highway may lead to a lot of interesting experiences on the highway, but sometimes people might witness something bizarre in the middle of the road.
In what might seem to be a scene right out of a Hollywood blockbuster, a truck convoy in Kazakhstan was stopped midway when a military helicopter landed in the middle of the highway and asked for directions, because they were lost.
As a trainee pilot stepped out of the MI-8 gunship military helicopter and asked for directions, a voice on the convoy radio asked just how someone could get lost in a steppe (an unforested grassland)
After the viral video left the military in a spot, the defense ministry reportedly released a statement claiming that it was an exercise where trainee pilots were asked to find their way by human survey.
