I just laugh.... in what lifetime is this a "hard landing"

A hard landing is when you bend a skid or the tailboom is not quite inline etc but its still standing upright on it feet...

sorry to break it to you... it crashed.. good and hard ! :D

I was being facetious Mr Pitch, hence my use of the inverted commas for 'hard landing'. I've seen softer 'landings'! :lol:

Capt.

Its not you im laughing at.. Ive seen this title used all over social media about this crash.. I thought you had simply copied the link.

Its like they are afraid to call a spade a spade.

It wouldn't be the first time someone has laughed at me!

You're right though, the media can't make up its mind. This crash is a 'hard landing' and yet when someone pulls off a perfect autorotation with no damage to the aircraft it gets labeled as a 'crash landing'.

Y'all know it's clearly wirestrike-induced VRS exacerbated by flying VFR into IMC. :cool_slp:
