Hard Landing

Recommended Posts

I wish I had a pic for this but none available.

On Monday night Kern County Sherrifs Department's surplus OH-58 made an auto rotation near Bakersfield College. The crew got out ok and the helo has some damage to the tail rotor and boom.

One of my co-workers who workred on H-1's said she heard a compressor stall and then a loud bang.


The Sherrif has been flying helos for 30 years and this is the third incident in that time frame. The last was in the early 90's. Not bad for all those hours in the air. Even the cops arn't imune from the Law of Averages.
