Mark, what are the two cases that you are referring too? I may
be able to explain.

If for any number of reasons the engine fails in a helicopters,
the pilot can disengage the engine from the rotor, allowing the
copter to gyro to earth.

When engine failure occurs for a short wing aircraft, especially
military fighters, and velocity is lost, a stall will surely
follow. Now, depending on how close that aircraft is to the
ground, will determine it's angle and rate of decent. Close to
the ground and you might as well punch out immediately. Impact
will almost be instantaneously.
