Van Halen icon David Lee Roth released the latest episode of The Roth Show on his official YouTube account and revealed the most terrifying moment of his life.

Roth told the experience he had when he flew over Las Vegas.

Here is his statement:

“Let’s go with that. When you see something like that from like 2.000 feet above, I think he was flying at about 1.500 feet, the Empire State Building is 1.100 feet give or take.

That gives you a little bit of perspective and when you see something from that high, did it look really tiny like a miniature film set to you? Or did it look all inspiring and terrifying?

That’s half the thrill and those kinds of aircraft that I trained in when I was flying it has the enclosed tail rotor. That makes it quieter that gives it a little more stability and that’s probably the most popular kind of helicopter in the US. Anytime you see aviation police mobile any with fire like that, that’s usually the kinds of helicopters that they’ve got and that’s a multi-million dollar aircraft.
