No joy with the video. You Tube says not available.

Can you expand on the symptoms and what choices you had other than shutting it down?
Around 20 min before landing the RH engine started oscillating. The result was an uncontrollable yaw moment.
I decided to shut the engine off. I guess there was no other choice. The short video shows the behavior of the engine after landing. I took it for documentation.

I just noticed that all three of the engine shut downs in this thread were the right hand engines. Must be a coincidence?
