Chinese pilots use helicopters to open beer bottles

Sort of.

According to The Huffington Post, as part of a three-day national helicopter tournament in Laiwu in eastern China, helicopter pilots compete to see who can open the most bottles with a bottle opener fastened to the end of the helicopters' skids.
