Autorotation - No hydraulic, broken blades and on a hill

Post by Guest on Sun 4 Aug 2013 - 11:26

I was with Canadianbaken as Gunship. I've been shot hard during an attack pass. I lost hydraulic and my controls started to be very uncontrollable. I was RTB when the FIRE light lighted up and the low RPM tone alarmed me... I just started an autorotation, called Mayday, then pray...

Was so hard to keep controls, could not keep a stable 60kts and aim the road, I just finished my ride on a hill. I was so anxious to crash I forgot to jettison my weapons.

My copilot and me were safe and not injured.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing

I think we can salvage this one.
