Recommend a Video |VOTW Archive

Today’s "Video of the Week" comes from AVweb readers Scott Ross and Chuck Jansen. After Chuck lost an engine in his Arrow, the two recreated the frightening experience in video, using a flight-simulator and radar screens to show what happened and mixing in audio from the ATC tower and a WIFR interview. The result is a stellar presentation that brough that brought the Rockford, Illinois controller (heard in the video) out to the fellows’ local EAA chapter (1414) for a presentation. According to Scott, the video’s been a hit with at least two other local chapters, as well!
