Hard landing


Recommended Posts

“One of the pilots on board the helicopter may have accidentally hit a switch that cut fuel to the engines. That caused a loss of power,” said Scott Gaenicke, spokesman for the Titusville Fire Department.



And this..


I wonder if they mean pulled the mixture, or the fuel valve.


If they accidentally turned off the fuel valve on a 22.... That's impressive.

"At least two people were aboard the helicopter"? An R22? Whatcha think it was, "Reporter Person"- A half dozen or so, a family and the faithful dog? Tight in that cockpit I'd guess, in spite of letting the dog ride in the drivers lap, and maybe even a little heavy loaded with "at least two people". A run on auto to a paved surface might have been a good choice...
