Prince Harry's Helicopter Stunts Wows At RAF Air Show (VIDEO)

Prince Harry stunned crowds with his daredevilry over the weekend when he participated in a number of impressive helicopter stunts at the Royal Air Force Cosford Air Show.

The 28-year-old royal, who has been serving in the British army since May 2005, sat front-seat copilot gunner in an Apache helicopter on Sunday, entertaining the air show spectators with a series of death-defying stunts -- including one that involved rolling the helicopter on its back. (Watch the video below for the aerial tricks.)

According to the Sun, Harry -- whose title in the RAF is "Captain Wales" -- was a surprise guest at the annual air show. It was reportedly his first time participating at the event.

"Everyone was so shocked when they realized Harry was taking part -- nobody knew," an onlooker told the British tabloid.

This isn't the first time this week that Harry has made headlines for bravely sticking his neck out. In a new book that's due out this month, a former squadmate of the prince reveals that the royal saved him from a homophobic attack in 2008.

"I will always be grateful to Harry and I will never forget what happened. Until he went over and dealt with everything I was on track for a battering," James Wharton, who says his fellow soldiers had physically threatened him for being gay before Harry intervened, told the Daily Mail.

As if we needed more reasons to think Prince Harry is fantastic. Check out the latest video below.
