          Amazing how stupid people must be to allow Trump to con, swindle, fraud, rip-off, defraud, cheat, trick deceive and hoodwink them.

                                  That video looks like he might not have had much control of the helicopter. Something probably broke and he couldn’t do much more than go along for the ride

                                          Preliminary assessment here, the maneuver he was doing was an auto rotation. That means he was having some type of engine failure and was doing everything he could to keep the thing in the air for as long as possible. With a heavy crosswind happening due to the storm he had to point downwind to attempt to fly to a safe spot for a controlled landing which I assume he was thinking Central Park. The auto-rotation dive leveled out and he knew there was no way he was going to make it and chose to put it down in the safest spot, on top of a building.
                                          Some truly heroic piloting here, he sacrificed himself for others.

                                                      At this point I can only assume he had no choice. There was a powerful crosswind due to the storm and attempting a auto-rotation maneuver with the aim for central park would have been the best option. When he leveled out at around 900ft he knew he wasn't going to make it and had to put it down somewhere that wouldn't cause injury to others and give him the best chance for survival, atop the tallest building within reach.
                                                      Heroic piloting.

                                                          I just had a dream that something crashed into buildings and caused a fire 🔥

                                                            Of course there's no way of really knowing, but it seems that the pilot encountered a mechanical problem and did his damnedest to try to land while minimizing damage or loss of life.

                                                              Helicopters are rather unforgiving in a situation like that

                                                              Definitely, the 'erratic flying' was an auto-rotation maneuver. Combined with the high winds from the storm his options were severely limited. The choice to put it down on the tallest building saved many peoples lives.
