Not exactly what I have in mind, but it certainly is a funny picture. More later.

There's no way those skydivers are getting back in! It's a wonder that the aircraft can fly safely on one engine, with all of that asymmetric drag. It doesnt appear that there's a lot of right-rudder either.

Is that what it takes to get out of a Twin Beech and not hit the horizontal?

I see a bootload of rudder trim and some rudder deflection, and a whole lot of aileron deflection there.  What I don't see is an N number and if I was a Fed I would really be interested in that.  Smokey Joe must be flying that one.  I suspect the only thing that might be working in their favor is they are probably descending at a good rate to keep the speed up.

I assume they are trying to hand-prop the dead engine :-)

Like everyone else, this makes the gears in my brain turn.

I have a friend with plenty of Beech 18 time. I might pass it by him if I remember.
