911 is pretty much useless out here in the sticks of Oklahoma. 121.5 IS effective! One pilot reporting on another in distress gets ATC attention in a hurry.

Yes Paul, it was a helpless feeling. I was thinking 121.5 or 911 depending on the outcome. Fortunately, Dave made the airport.

Nice job Rod.  That must be a really helpless feeling to be that close and all you can do is watch!

Thanks for the video.
