Good thread.

An example of getting information out there to pilots who might face this very situation in a 300.

Wonder how much time he had in helicopters? He was hovering and waiting for emergency crew? I don't get it.
Hughes 300C is an amazing helicopter. Not sure if his was a 300CB or C?
I flew one for a couple of years and worked it hard like in very. Hard to beat and the auto is not as bad as some say. RPM is quick to get back should you try to extend your glide.
