Nice job....better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air then to be in the air wishing you were on the ground...
My helo instructor (famous aerobatic pilot Mary Gaffney) once said a helicopter is inherently unstable and wants to destroy itself. Your mission, as pilot, is to prevent that from happening.
they sure got some good footage :) Nice job landing i bet the pilot had a beer that afternoon.will be interesting to see what the incident report comes up with regarding the "cracked engine" ...human factors ..?
WOW....that video gave me chills....thank goodness all came out ok! Great job by the pilot!
Even better job by the pilot of the Channel 2/9 helicopter giving a heads up to the smoke from the channel 5 helicopter. He was also the instructor for the pilot of the damaged ship.
