Aircraft Emergency And Landing in a Glasair - the impossible turn ???

My Glasair engine is a Subaru SVX EG-33. Six bearings in the planetary speed reduction unit failed during departure. I declared an in-flight emergency and immediately returned for landing. Total flight time was 63 seconds. Departure was made with 10 degrees of flaps and remained there until landing with 25 degrees. The buzzer during much of the flight is the "gear up" with "flaps extended" warning horn ... the stall horn never sounded. Speed did drop but the flight never reached critically low speed. Power was intentionally reduced to keep gearbox temps down. I fly patrol flights at 500 ft or less, often 6 to 7 hrs a day. So I do have low level maneuvering experience. I failed to plug the camera mike in so you don't hear the engine monitor blaring out alarms or chatter between other pilots and myself. Some may call this the impossible turn but power was available during the entire flight.

As you might have noticed I changed the name of my Youtube Channel, Instagram account, Twitter account and Facebook page from Mascaralicious to DutchPilotGirl! There was a lot of confusion about my channel name. Now that my channel is growing fast and that I am focusing way more on aviation videos than ever, I thought it might be a good idea to change my name to something more obvious. In one of the following videos I am going to make a Question & Answer video. I will try to answer the questions you guys have regarding this channel and aviation. If you have any questions or if you really want to know how some things in aviation work, please let me know by commenting below in the comment box! Another last important thing..! I get a lot of messages from people who want to become a(n) (airline) pilot or from people in and around aviation, which I find amazing and very inspiring to read! :D I really appreciate this and just to let you know that I read all of your messages!

Crosswind difficulties - winter 2013/14
Some landing and take-off highlights in awkward wind conditions at BHX this winter (a record winter for stormy conditions in the UK). Note the frequent flexing of the planes' wings in response to the turbulence. Of the five "missed approaches" shown, three diverted to other airports, two were "go arounds" and landed successfully on second attempt.

This F15 aircraft suffers an engine fire some distance out from a landing site. After trying to extinguish the fire the fire remains. The pilot lands the aircraft but a suprise when travelling down the runway
