Nice job....better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air then to be in the air wishing you were on the ground...

My helo instructor (famous aerobatic pilot Mary Gaffney) once said a helicopter is inherently unstable and wants to destroy itself. Your mission, as pilot, is to prevent that from happening.

Even better job by the pilot of the Channel 2/9 helicopter giving a heads up to the smoke from the channel 5 helicopter. He was also the instructor for the pilot of the damaged ship.

KTLA was the inventor of the Telecopter and for many years was the only full time color camera platform in the air. Pilot Larry Scheer, and cameraman Harold Morby were the first crew to ever have a live color signal from an aircraft on all three television networks at the same time. An earthquake in 1971 was the story. Sadly that aircraft (N555TV) was sold to NBC and Gary Powers (U2 pilot shot down over Russia) and he ran out of fuel causing a fatal crash.

Great real-life auto-rotattion to the ground (pavement. Shows what good training can do. KCEU.
How do you figure it was a autorotation?

I know what autorotation is. Looks to me he landed with power. Cautionary landing.
