03-15-2004, 07:22 AM
ANN (Aviation Network News) is reporting that there was a gyrocopter crash at ???- according to them Bill Ortmeyer and another person was seriously injuried. The accident apparently occurred on take off -it looks like blade flap and subsequent destruction of the blades--it was also reported that one of the persons was hit in the head with the blades --
I dont know thw location of the crash or any other details--I accidentially erased my "Propwash" so hopefully somebody else will have more details---
