America's Cup: Images of the AC45 wipeout at Golden Gate Bridge

ORACLE Racing technical shakedown in San Francisco bay.

Further to yesterday's spectacular images and video of Oracle Racing's Russell 'Crash' Coutts having a very near miss on the second day of sailing on San Francisco Bay, more photos have been released of the same very spectacular incident.

And maybe the film helicopter is the real villain of the piece - with its downdraft.
