This happened yesterday. They refueled and took back off!
Least this one didn’t get hit by a truck.
Obviously referring to the one on Alligator Alley, that truck driver should be tarred and feathered for that stupid behavior.
Those motorcycle cops will never catch him now....
It probably took traffic 4 hours to recover.
So a round runway WILL work
I flew that plane the day before, and our club mechanic checked it out. It was flying again yesterday and I've got it scheduled for Sunday weather permitting.
How much avgas got “delivered” to him on I-640? Just enough to hop to Downtown Island airport? Unless a fuel truck from the airport went to the scene, I can’t imagine the friend (mentioned in the media) would be able to bring much.
There was one highway landing where the "crash" was blamed on spark plugs. The plane took off again after the plugs were cleaned. The conjecture was that they refilled those tanks of spark plug cleaner on the wings.
5 gallons would have been enough. 10 would have been more than enough.
At least they didn't total the thing trying to haul it out on a truck...
If I was flying a high wing cessna and I was low on fuel for whatever reason and the weather, traffic, and obstacles permitted, I would land on a highway in heartbeat.
If dad really wanted to repaint his airplane, I'd land it on the highway in front of his house and taxi to the shop on the farm.
Damn it you beat me to it I was on our last aerial photo shoot last night so I have an excuse.
Grr... haven’t flown in 2 weeks ... don’t rub it in
Starting Monday morning I'm grounded for at least a month so you'll more than get even!
Good thing OJ wasn't a pilot..
Now that is funny..!!!
So years ago my dad and his long time pilot lost an oil line and had to land on 95 in Jacksonville. Plane just out of annual. His pilot was an a/e someone brought them oil. Tightened the line up cleaned the windscreen and off they went. That plane stunk for a good while after that. So I think this Cessna is certified for mo gas also so some 93 may have made it there. Jim had to run some in a 182 one time said it stunk almost as bad as the oil burning off.

Maybe he was in the back seat
I like the wing rock at the end.
Wait? Took back off? According to someone here, that is never allowed unless 3000 miles from the nearest paved road. What gives?
I’m not sure I would care about it being Avgas. I believe I would take 5-gal of whatever.
Isn’t the autogas STC simply a piece of paper? Any actual modifications involved? If it’s only paper, there’s enough to tapdance to FSDO about that the choice of fuel would be a minor nit.
For that plane it's just paper and a placard. Of course, you can't use "whatever" for fuel. The STC's have octane and no-ethanol constraints for good reason.
