Whoa, or is it weee....
Well, at least the tree absorbed some of the impact...
Wow, what's the story on that?
I see your Cessna and raise you a Corvette...
Not a bad technique: fly the bottom of one wing into the tree and let the canopy absorb the impact. Bet he meant to do that.
OK...we have all heard to fly into the top canopy of trees if that is your only engine out option and it will soften the blow.
Honesty though while good idea in theory it was complete and utter BS in reality.
I stand corrected.
Did he give his keys to the valet at the airport?
"OK, please try to remember where we parked."
That tall green tree-looking creature was the valet.
Hold my beer, and watch this...
Demonstrating that if you gotta crash, it's best to put it down in a parking lot right next to a big dumpster trailer.
That way, not only is disposal of the wreckage convenient, it's also easy for the Lyft driver to find his way to your location, for your ride home.
That's a tight turns around a point,maneuver.
Here's the news story.
Can we begin speculating yet?
At first glance I thought it was an engine failure to forced landing, but none of the news articles mention that. Apparently just a landing attempt to the airport?
The news article states clearly that this was a landing, not a crash! I guess that's progress. Now for the airmanship part....
Cause was hitting tree and terrain.
Contributing factors: pilot was low, slow, and old.
It landed, in the same way that if you dropped an object from your hand it then landed on the ground.
But it was not a landing.
He's double parked.
OK, kids, we're here!!
Maybe that was the plan. If so, I'm duly impressed.
Not if he's in the larger handicapped spot.
Maybe he was testing a new variation of "The Impossible Turn"?
He probably just qualified for the handicapped spot.
He was calibrating the new AOA
Any chance the pilot's name was George?
Found the spot where he "landed". It is west of the airport and he would have been flying perpendicular to the runway when he hit the tree.
Well Good Lord!
Nobody knows how to park at that airport.
And what on earth is that Rutan thing on the ramp?
And boy was it out of whack, phew!
and the 3 ghost planes are freaky looking..
OMG! There are two airplanes on the runway at the same time.
What is a velocity?
Yabut I am (we are) used to a successful engine out landing with no damage called a Crash. This is better!
Coordinates for crash site. 41.688989, -72.867074
How he ended up there I have no idea.
Not sure how he ended up there, almost 90 degrees to the runway. I circled the tree he hit.
