Surviving a forced/crash landing
« on: February 09, 2018, 11:43:27 PM »

This video is totally different than Amelia and Fred's situation was in 1937.  It's filmed in British Columbia, not Niku.  The major problem is cold, not heat.  But it's kind of interesting to see how experienced pilots, knowing they're going to spend ONE NIGHT after a forced landing, and having their emergency bag ready, still have such a tough time.  And how the smallest things can make a difference.

If you add a sudden "There's a plane!" moment how would these folks have responded after a few days in the bush?  Would they have been able to add smoke-producing fuel to their fire?  Would they have had the energy to run 50 yards to jump and wave and draw attention to themselves?
