simple error!

Postby RealityCheck » Tue Oct 2 2007, 08:25

I know whats gone wrong here!!!

The pilot, trying to save time, has decided to leave checking 'full and free movement', until he was ready to go... clearly not the best idea!?

Doubt his 'chief pilot' would have taught him that :D

Very impressive bit of flying. If that's what you want to call it.
I'd say the Pilot wouldn't have needed a seat belt for that. I know that my arse would have sucked very hard onto the seat once I worked out what was going on. Would have taken a large crow bar to get me out once everything stopped turning and the aircraft would have needed a new pilots seat.

Reality Cheque, you are way off the mark.

Have you ever landed on a boat pitching as much as this one? It is a really weird feeling. This poor pilot is holding a flat disc with a lot of collective pitch still in.

Look at it again, you will see that he almost gets airborne three times, rocking forward on the skids, each time as the boat reaches its maximum pitch. On the last pitch nose down, there is enough disc pointing forward and enough pitch that the machine just tilts forward and flies away.

When he sees it, he snaps back and the rest is very lucky history.

Eric, don't worry mate, it was a joke, i'd hope that no pilots ACTUALLY check full and free when at 100%...

Dont think so Bitch, although I have made many a ship landing I am not endorsed in an Enstrom (the bloke in question flys a greenpeace H369 now)

A reason why this may have happened is due to the rolling motion of the boat and from experience (which you probably do not have Bitch) it is difficult mentally trying NOT to keep the disc horizontal with the horizon hence at flight idle the chopper can become airbourne due to the rolling swell (if trying to keep disc horizontal)

Keep it coming BS

Exactly to take yet another qualified FLYING position that could not be filled by an Australian.
And once again no it is not me flying the Enstrom all my ship landings have been done in H369s, B206s and EC 120s

"like we are going to take your word it wasn’t you flying"
"Like WE" you quoted.......funny how YOU started it and there seems to be no WE backing you up..........

Not sure just how loud to call out for help,

You are that big a bragger you belittle yourself, now get back on the boat, log some more ship landings and get off at the first stop NZ.

All the Wee is running down the back of your neck, because the s#!t is flowing out the front of it..

Somebody help me, mad Kiwi with a computer on the loose. He will be sitting down making up hours as I type, next thing you will see he is twin engine IFR captain (O and landing on ships)

dont let me forget, he is taking all our jobs, dam it....

you would have to get drunk for a month to get over that one, do you recon that poor bastard that was hugging the deck for dear life got a new job when he got back to land? How close did that tail rotar come to beheading him? :shock: :?
A good idea needs landing gear as well as wings to get off the ground.

I agree. Poor bastard. I reckon it would have been less a case of prying the seat out of the pilots backside, and more a case of extracting the landing pad from the crewmans.
The pilot would have been relying on instinct and training to put that machine down. All that crewman could do was lay down and scream.
I'm a pessimist, that way I'm either always being proven right, or pleasantly surprised.
