Old, But Interesting:


BK-117 Crash Landing - The best free videos are right here

This machine was repaired, then subsequently sold to the company
I work for. Painted and looking like new, I can testify that it flies just fine, thank you!

Amazing to see the flex in the skids on landing. I would love to hear a little about single engine procedures on the BK. It was hard for me to tell with that steep approach when the engine quit but assume it was too late in the descent to fly away? If it was earlier could he have flown away OEI or made a run on landing? Thanks for the video GB.

Regards,
Mark
