Ahh, but how many fliers would cope with a double engine failure on this model at low altitude & speed? Easy to say "close the power & land straight ahead", afterwards.................. :shock:
Don't know the cause of course (fuel exhaustion?); that might explain judgemental issues.
Having got away with assymetric power on takeoff, and an engine fail at low altitude/downwind, on an 88in span DH-88 Comet, I can tell you it takes every bit of concentration & judgement for a successful outcome (and a LARGE dose of luck!). NOT the same as the real thing where you're sitting inside it...................... :mrgreen:
Hopefully no-one hurt though there'd probably be some vehicle damage...................

It might have helped if he had pushed the rudder the correct way. . The footage shows the rudder deployed to the right. :roll:
