Night auto onto a busy freeway. Hats off to the pilot for a safe landing!

Is it just me, or was that a loooong run-on?

It seemed long to me, but then I've never auto'd what he was flying, and what the heck, he got it down without bouncing it or bending the bird, so I'd say he done good

Oh, I'm not making a critique - just an observation and a genuine question. My experience is limited to Robinsons, and my autos to date are only in training. In the R22 (and light winds) we only skittered down the runway for a few yards, and in the R44 I could touch down with zero groundspeed, but those were controlled conditions during the daytime in a (presumably) different machine.

Speaking of, anyone know what machine that is?

To reiterate - night-time auto while dodging moving obstructions (cars!) on the only flat spot available. Done good indeed!

Someone was training for autos in one of our AS350s last week and whacked the tail on the runway pretty hard.

I think everyone pulled a neck muscle that day.

Yeah, it's fine so far as I know. It was out training again yesterday.

I just remember walkin down the line to the hangar where there were a bunch of smudges hangin out.

Heard the whine, looked up, *WHACK*

"OOOOOOOoooooohhhhh!!!... Order another one!"

A bit of googling found this:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/art...U-S-929321.php

All the info I found just says engine failure or loss of power. Be nice to get some more details.

Incredible pilot.
