A difficult landing in Dubai's Burj Al Arab - Bell 407

Recommended Posts

It could be a real challenge trying to land at the helipad on the top of the world famous Burj Al Arab 7-stars hotel in Dubai. I'm still trying, but always finish crashing down into the sea. Could anyone try and send the pictures, ah, and ... no tricks please!.

Whoa there, not easy.  The day after my daughter was born, I was with my wife, my daughter and I in the Thunderbird Hospital in Phoenix, on Oct. 16th 1999.  Suddenly there was a huge amount of shaking, I got off the couch in my wife's maternity room, she was getting ready to leave when I hissed at her to stay put, we're having an earthquake.  But my initial thought, and the nurses initial thoughts, was that an air rescue helicopter had crashed into the hospital.  There were no doctors to be seen, so I took charge of the floor that night, as First Daddy, I told them it was an earthquake, and to tend to those patients who were now crying in fear of what had happened.  The nurses scowled at their doctors when they returned from whatever break they were on but thanked me. I would do it again, I was a Sports Coach in my youth and I know you coach people thru a crisis, you do not scare them thru it.

Yeah it's not easy. Especially with the default FSX Jetranger. Weirdly, I did manage to land the ultralight on there. Go figure...
