That's... just... wow.

Probably could've bought 3 replacement warbirds for the fuel and maintenance of that flight

I think that was a Robinson R-22 - if it was, the going rental rate is only about $230/hr wet (fuel included), so a ten minute detour to unstick a plane they watched get stuck in a tree only cost about forty bucks

Yep. From what I got from their conversation, the heli was flying for some other purpose (training, I think), and the guy on the left happened to notice the RC plane flying about. While he was watching, it crashed into the tree, so he circled around and had the other fella snag it out of the tree.
