     The second season eps show a lot less "hitting the silk". I have a
friend that flies Bell 212's (civvy "Twin Huey") and the general rule
about bailing out of choppers seems to be:

        "You auto-rotate, or you die."

     Think about it. You're in a BlackHawk that's crashing, and you jump
out. Are you going to clear the rotor? Don't think so.

P.S. The radio interference to the fly-by-wire controls in my
fanfic-thing was based on a number of BlackHawk helicopter crashes apparently
caused by control system failure brought on by exposure to a heavy
electromagnetic field. There have been six instances so far, if I
recall, but everyone's been reluctant to pinpoint that as the cause.
