Was out flying around Seattle yesterday evening... Made a drop-off of my passenger on top of the Space Needle.
Picture from cockpit as I´m closing in on the Needle for the pick-up off my passenger
The plan was to make a quick touch & go to let him get aboard the bird again. What happened next was that I did, what I think, quite a nice landing on the catwalk around the Needle. But before I could react the chopper was thrown sideways by wind (or by bad pilot inputs) and my fellow companion got an unwanted close contact with my tail rotor... RIP
The chopper´s rotor hit the roof of the building and shattered. I managed to get out before it crashed but was stranded on top of the Space Needle myself.
Nothing more to do than sit down, relax and have a smoke and wait for someone to pick me up...
Nice view from up here...
After a while when I realized that no one was coming for my rescue (guess my "friend" was a little pissed off after I chopped him to pieces) I did the only thing I could do -a BASE jump... Too bad I forgot the parachute....
End of story...
This is how NOT to fly the C-130... I guess i should gain some altitude before trying to make a loop ´=)
