    Looks like it. Age is right and there are a couple other forums saying it was the same.

    The good thing about helicopter crashes is, baring any serious malfunction, they are usually pretty minor( compared to plane crashes).

    Helicopters can Autorotate, dampening the crash

    According to Mas on Glocktalk, they were helicopter hog hunting near Okeechobee

    Seeing how this is a gun forum, I'll skip that debate...except to say that statement reminds me of recent ones about ARs.

    Just glad Mas and everyone else is ok.

    Concern appreciated, folks. We're a bit banged up, but all OK.

    PS: Alas, auto rotation doesn't work terribly well when the aircraft loses power over a forested area, and the rotors hit the treetops. :what: Nose-down landings are not fun.

    As they say, a helicopter is just a collection of spare parts flying in close formation.

    Glad everybody's OK.

    Great news, helicopters can be replaced. I bet you were almost scared for a second.

    Whew, I am glad to hear everyone made it out. As a private pilot, I know the odds of walking away from a crah. I have only had one close shave, but it can change your outlook...quick. Take care and best wishes...

    Creepy stuff can happen in impact accidents. I sure hope Mas is ok like he said he was. My prayers are with him & the others.

    I had a car wreck and went to the ER and kept telling everyone I was ok. ER made sure I wasn't dying then released me. My wife ignored me saying I was ok & she took me to some specialists where they said I had a concussion & a couple vertebrate out of line. Between the concussion & vertebrate messing up my nervous system I was half delusional for a month. I thought I was ok but I was so 'out of it' I wasn't even allowed to drive for several weeks.

    My prayers are with those in the wreck that they truly are ok with no lingering effects.
