Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy, from YouTube channel The Slo Mo Guys, went to the Nevada desert for an amazing video. They filmed in slow-motion bullets being shot from a contraption that recreates a WWI propeller plane.
“As a kid I never understood how they managed to do the thing where they fired machine guns through the propellers of planes. Now that I’m a grown-up and the internet has been invented, I’ve been able to look it up,” Gruchy said.
In the first attempt, the bullets were shot without touching the propeller, as they are supposed to. However, in the second attempt, they wanted to prove what happens if the bullets hit the propeller.
