SOCL 57 sets down in waist high grass at the high altitude racing course at Honah Lee Trudeau (link).
SOCL 57, the well known rescue team of the Secret Order of the Crested Lotus, was forced to make an emergency landing while conducting speed drills at the HLT Helicopter Racing Course (accessible by tp from HLT). No one was injured during the emergency but onlookers were greatly alarmed as the craft spewed smoke from an exhaust port.
“We run our craft pretty hard,” the pilot admitted, “and in some tough environments. We had a polar rescue just last week.”
