15 minutes of FUN in Antigua about: A tropical paradise! I must come back in a helicopter! Managed a wheels up landing... unintentional! Tore off the right flaps and put a few dings in the bodywork, nothing that won't buff out! airport: V.C Bird International country: Antigua and Barbudalocale: Saint Johns tags: Emergency published: 2021 updated: 2021-03-16
VFR to IMC - Emergency!! about: A very sobering experience!
In retrospect I should have engaged altitude hold immediately. I couldn't believe how, once my visual references were removed (by rain), I was -- totally -- behind the aircraft in every respect. airport: Aarhus country: Denmarklocale: Aarhus tags: Emergency published: 2021 updated: 2021-04-01
15 minutes of FUN in Ethiopia about: Had an in-flight emergency when the airspeed/mach indicators went u/s! Landed successfully. On reviewing the cockpit cam I saw that the airspeed HAD come back online during final approach, but I was so fixated on the picture, relating it to past landings in order to guess the speed, that I hadn't even noticed! airport: Bole International country: Ethiopialocale: Addis Ababa tags: EmergencyLandingMiGMan: Combat Diary published: 2021 updated: 2021-04-04
