I've been to that airport! My boss in the late 90's kept his plane there.
Was he trying to land on the road?
I always heard that "touch-and-go" thingy was very, very dangerous!
The Transportation Safety Board has said that the privately-owned plane was doing a training maneuver called “a touch-and-go” when it went down...
“It’s an easy way to do a bunch of takeoffs and landings if you are doing some training but in this case something went wrong,” TSB investigator Ewan Tasker told CTV News Toronto on Tuesday.
the thread title... Tongue-in-cheek...Right?
And a Canadian chute at that!
Touch and go means scraping a wingtip on the ground don’t it?
Practicing for their airshow routine, no doubt, followed by a short-field landing.
Just goes to show that we need an outright ban on cars or severely restricte their usage. They are a menace to the flying public. Think of the children!
Looked like they were dragging something. A fence post bounced across the road after the plane.
Was that a light pole that they hit? You can see it sliding across the road in front of the car.
How should the instructor and student log that landing?
As a “touch” but not a “go”
Sort of looks like the top piece of the chain link security fence. Definitely a dent in the leading edge of the right wing.
The wingtip was dragging the road. Anyone get a good look at the position of the rudder and ailerons.??
Lucky he didn’t cartwheel it and start a fire.
audio recording here:
You can hear the student pilot announce her turns three times, approximately at 13 min, 14 min and lastly just before 15 minutes. The instructor pipes in, adding the phrase "touch and go" to her announcements.
Then, at about 17 minutes and again at about 18 minutes, another voice asks "aircraft at end of runway, are you guys okay"? Shortly thereafter there are more voices, including an inbound pilot who apparently reacts to the commotion by announcing he's landing on a different runway.
That was pretty crazy. Amazing some of the things caught on dash cam. Glad they only had minor injuries.
Video resolution isn't good enough to tell.
But, once they've blown through the fence and drug a wing on the ground, they are probably only along for the ride.
Speaking of, I assume the FAA will consider this a non-allowed through-the-fence operation...
someone sent me this as a .GIF, and I thought it was photo-chopped.
It just looked far too bizarre
