LOL ya reckon!

 

IIRC this was a hydraulic failure, aside from that poor emergency training.

If memory serves, this happened in 2004. Pilot misinterpreted the horn, thought it was an engine failure, dumped cyclic and hard left pedal. After that he was never able to input enough right pedal to keep 'er straight. Someone posted the NTSB report here about a year ago...

Amen to that. Traning would have taught him that dumping hydraulics (On Collective) would have been the best answer. The way I see it is, he had a hydralic faliure and was running on acumulators and the one side ran out before the other. Stiff one way, easy the other. Not a nice way to fly. Dumping it would have made all forces even.

Do you know where to find the ntsb report?

I would like to read it.

Amazing how 'old' video gets recycled as 'new' video. Someone showed me the same video a couple of days ago, saying it 'just happened'.

 

None the less, they were pretty lucky they never turned turtle.

I suppose training is only effective when the assesment as to wtf is wrong, is right. Lot of stuff to figure out while your dodging buildings and wrestling iron around in a panic. Training should just kick in and dictate ones response... but it's got to be the right response.

 

It would be great if we were all the calm cool professionals we all believe ourselves to be when the s--t hits the fan...May all your fans be forever s--t free.

Now that, is a "great" point kjw57.....all to easy for the "armchair quarterbacks" to sit back and say, "i woulda" done this, or "i woulda" done that...... :down:
