    Well, at least the tree absorbed some of the impact...

    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. :eek:

    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.

    That tall green tree-looking creature was the valet.

    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.

    The news article states clearly that this was a landing, not a crash! I guess that's progress. Now for the airmanship part....:sigh:

    Sure.

    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.

    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.

    Yabut I am (we are) used to a successful engine out landing with no damage called a Crash. This is better!

    IMG_0144.JPG Not sure how he ended up there, almost 90 degrees to the runway. I circled the tree he hit.
