Maybe overhead utilities would get in the way?
That's the smallest gripe. In an emergency the first thing you do is trim the plane for maximum glide. Then you start enging restart procedures. That plane didn't have the right nose attitude.
Then carb heat? You are constantly turning that on and off as you make throttle adjustments. Under 2k RPM it has to be on. You can tell when it is working. Before you take off in a small plane you always check your carb heat and magnetos in a run-up before taking off.
Now was that malfunctioning? Or did he forget to use it? Then he did not stall the plane into the landing. You want the point of a landing to be at the exact same point that the plane loses its ability to fly(stall) so that the landing is as soft as possible. He plopped it.
A lot of mistakes were made in that video.
Not as bad as the one last year, where the guy flew into the trees rather than setting down. But still bad.
I know people say its hard to do the right thing in an emergency, but that is why you have all the training. It isn't like you just go to the DMV and get a PP license.
