    Thanks for the concern, fellas. We're OK. Cuts, contusions, soreness, & a definite sense of adventure. And gratitude to a fine pilot who kept it from being a LOT worse in the last seconds when the aircraft suddenly lost power.

    Appreciatively,
    Mas

    Glad you all made it out in one piece. Sounds like you owe the pilot a six pack.

    An old aviation proverb: A helicopter is a physical device that almost doesn't fly!

    Glad you are ok, Mas!

    Times like this I remember the words of my flight instructor: "Take-offs are optional, landing is inevitable and mandatory. Any landing that you walk away from is a good landing!

    I have a huge problem with Massad Ayoob! That deep monotone voice reminds me of your better than average early 80's porn star so every time I hear him on tv or the web that Bow Chica Mow Wow music kicks on in my head and drowns out everything he's saying!:supergrin: Other than that, I never pass up reading anything written by him! Glad everyone is OK Mas!:wavey:
