    Close call video

    I snagged this video from another site as it was just too good for me not to share it with you guys.

    This video literally sent shivers down my back.

    I cannot believe they did that. Such poor airmanship, when I saw that happen I was in shock at how close these guys were to a certain death.
    You can see the look on the pilots face just after.

    Yeah, very dangerous. Just common sense really, I paused the video then commented and then watched the rest and then I saw they actually clipped the wing. If they had got much more wing caught It could have pulled them round into the hill.

    wow,

    crazy, what was that pilot doing! That's why not everybody can be a airline pilot, if you can't fly a beech you probaly won't be able to fly a jet.

    The most dangerous thing in aviation, so they say, is a Doctor in a Bonanza.....

    Consider not only is the guy above a moron..but he also has a plane FULL of passengers who have placed their trust in HIM.
    Having flown into that cloud (which, let's face it, can happen to anyone if they are having a bad day and a lapse in judgement) why the blazes didn't he do the obvious...climb like a homesick angel??? Sure cloud may continue to a great height but nobody ever hit Cumulo Granatis at 5000ft above actual terrain!



    IIRC, when they did some simulator studies, the average life expectancy of VFR pilots in IMC was something like 180 seconds (178 rings a bell??) so..start your stop watch and make your peace!!

    LOL - That's a good one.

    Re: Close call video

    I'm curious as to what the albatross pilot did? Surely he was smart enough to avoid the 'bushes'

    Isn't the mere possibility of loosing visual contact with the ground IFR? Requiring an IFR flight plan/rating? That is the weather forecast in the direction of flight should have precluded VFR flight anyway. They shouldn't have been allowed to fly VFR and even if that wasn't the case at the beginning of the flight should have diverted or returned home if not able to transition to an IFR plan.

    Pilot didn't know where he was?
    Pilot didn't use his instruments including the big honking GPS unit effectively
    Pilot didn't file an IFR plan either before departure or during the flight.
    Pilot wasn't qualified to fly IFR or he would have I'm sure.
    Pilot didn't contact ground at any time for assistance (clearance to a new flight level)

    Pilot and passengers can thank the bushes (by that I mean shrubs) for keeping them alive...
