In a remarkable twist, I have got this in before JTL!

A109 exhaust seperation, TR strike, safe landing (here).

RAF2000 has a high RoD after downwind take-off (here).

R22 strikes ground during low hover (here).

H300 unexpected yaw on lift, tail strikes ground (here).

Safe flying all - see you tomorrow!

Just read the A109 report. Shocked

Well done that man for getting it down safely - must have been a real "new pants" moment. It is that sort of result, in those sort of conditions, that the rest of us aspire to being able to achieve; but hope never to have to find out!

Shocking. Bet getting out of the field wasn't so easy either!
