• "Tafoer" I agree with you, a Controlled crash. Autorotation was the only option they had. Great pilot! Who was he? I wish I could fly like he does. It does not take much to bring down a helicopter. They are a very complicated machine.

  • Controlled crash more than likely. Autorotation of the helicopter would get them down safely, but a little rough. Pilot and passengers are trained on proper procedures in events like this.
