Re: Caravan Dropping Meat Bombs Down Near Buffalo, NY, One Dead

With a turbine you only need to do a normal circuit from overhead (10,000') into wind. I could land before the pax. No spiral required. This was a BN2T not sure about the C208. With pistons I used to do a bit of a very lazy wide circuit around the area for cylinder head temperature cooling reasons....

Re: Brought down by a kite string?
