Some of you may know my ex-wife,
She had started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce started and she got her license shortly before our divorce was final, late that same year.
Yesterday afternoon, she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting when she was forced to make an emergency landing because of bad weather.
Some could call it a crash; an accident at the least.
National Transportation Safety Board officials have issued a preliminary determination citing pilot error contributed to the accident, and she was flying a single
engine aircraft (a basic model, at best) in IFR (instrument flight rating) conditions while only having obtained a VFR (visual flight rating) rating.
The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel on board. No one on the ground was injured.
Photographs below were taken at the scene show the extent of damage to her aircraft.
She was very lucky.
you made me spit beer out my nose onto my keyboard!
good thing she didn't request a "fly-by" Viper...you have the ball :D
A Rerun in honor of my divorce becoming final oh about 30 years ago
(since remarried great wife and kids)
I don't know where you are at darlin, but this is for you
Do you think there is a recall on this model because my wife has that exact model.
Doing some research for now she grounded her aircraft after I showed her what happened to you ex wife. She said it will be no big deal she will just use her menstrual-cycle, I'm done for!
I once taped a match to a broom and gave it to my ex-mother-in-law so she could travel at night.
lol lol lol lol lol will hang this one up in the hanger :)
