If you notice closely, till around 7 seconds, there is no helicopter. But within fraction of second a helicopter appears out of nowhere hovering above the aircraft.

Yep, the phantom helicopter

Netizens were quite amused at the phantom helicopter.

The revelation is CCP China’s new stealth helicopter. As ever @PDChina pushing the envelope on video editing standards.

Some even expressed concerns over the safety and life of the person who might’ve edited this video of phantom helicopter.

Somewhere in China a video-editor just lost his/her job.

And by job I mean life. https://t.co/ZPgPssZPPN

This will not be the first time China would have used tackily edited videos for propaganda. In 2011, the Chinese Armed Forces had tried to pass off a video of the 1986 Hollywood iconic movie “Top Gun” starring Tom Cruise as the footage of a PLA Air Force training exercise.

As soon as they were caught, the People’s Liberation Army had faced a severe embarrassment and were quick to pull the video.
