    If its the one im thinking of, the guy was a real show off and tried a very tight turn at low level, the engines couldnt cope , nor was there enough lift and the plane piled into the ground killing everyone on board, apparently he had been warned re low flying on numerous occassions, and there is a You Tube vid

    Yeah it was a practice the day before. Here's an interesting link that shows what a liability the pilot was, and an endemic lack of senior officers to enforce safe flying by pilots with previous 'form' in the USAF at that time.

    Jeeez ..., what a horror story of a read in retrospect......


    Especially considering the ramifications of nobody taking any action, even though Holland repeatedly broke regs.

    High altitude
    Ambition exceeding ability
    Helicopter finds snow
    Glad no one got cleaned up.

    The Altitude in them mountains sure do make it hard on the engines and thrust. Looks like he didn't have time to auto rotate before coming in. I believe the altitude is what stalled him out out of the turn. Listen closely and you all may hear it right after he banks. The chop is off. Full cyclic can help on that. Down like a rock. Ouch.
