    They don't look any the worse for wear. Kongrats to all who were on board for being able to walk away.

    I'm relieved to hear that you're okay and no worse for wear. Water, ice, and motrin over the next couple days sir.

    I expect an awesome ProArms podcast out of this!

    Seriously though, glad you're all ok. (Not just saying that because I haven't been to MAG 80 yet!)

    :eek: Mr Ayoob, so happy you're all O.K.

    Can't add much to that other than, as a heli mechanic, I'd be interested in knowing what final determination on cause is found. Airframe looks reasonably intact, so that should be fairly straight-forward task.

    By the way, what model bird was it?

    Stay safe!

    Man, check in on a Sunday and see this thread...:uhoh:
    Very glad to read that all is well. :)
    Oh, and I have always believed that a helicopter is just an optical illusion with sound effects..;)

    A helicopter pilot buddy of mine in the Air Force once told me that a helo doesn't fly, it just beats the air into submission.:eek::D

    Glad you all are okay.:)

    Thank God you're all OK. As a Paramedic, I keep up on medevac crashes and note that most have no survivors. You're in a pretty exclusive club now.

    I suppose this will fuel the fire of conspiracy theories of pro-gun notables dying (2 out of 3 now, Noveske, FPSRussia guy) in mysterious accidents. Somebody please post the NTSB report when it comes out.

    I'll take it. Most fixed wing crashes (small craft, anyway) are survivable. Just as helicopters are able to auto-rotate with proper piloting, airplanes tend to be pretty decent gliders. So long as the pilot remembers Rule #1 (fly the airplane), you'll probably get out of it ok, barring a complete airborne disassembly or sudden contact with an immovable object (like a mountain).

    Glad ya made it ok, Mas!

    If they had any reel skilz, they'd be targeting some of those rogue pythons endangering all the wildlife in the area ;-)

    Glad to hear all will be ok. I love that area.

    Mass, any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! The Lord was watching over you and your friends.

    Glad you made it out alright. Hopefully with nothing more than some bumps and bruises.
