The propellor wasn't turning when he jumped, but it was after he jumped.
Most fixed pitched props don’t stop turning unless it reallly is a catastrophic engine failure where it locks up, extremely rare. The reason it
stopped in his video, is you can see him pulling the airplane up to bleed off enough airspeed so much so that there is not enough airflow to drive the
prop. First sign of a Complete fabrication.
You can see a dry River bed below, that would be a perfect spot for an emergency landing, no reason to jump, and no reason to ever wear a parachute
unless you intend to do aerobatics with a passenger. (By regs)
Obviously in a real emergency, being able to hold a selfie stick and pushing the record button on the rest of the go pros would be the last thing on
anyone’s mind if they even remember to do so.
I hope this douche bag gets the book thrown at him. General Aviation in the US is in a fragile state, and morons like this do not help.
I hope Cali fines him for destruction of wilderness environment, littering, hazmat cleanup, attempted arson, etc etc.
This Taylorcraft is 80 years old, a flying piece of history, now never able to be enjoyed by future kids wanting to learn to fly. One less piece of
somewhat affordable flying as well.
