Emergency Landing

Well, this would be a quite surprising sight at the neighborhood gas station.

Aviators like to opine that any landing you can walk away from... is a good landing.

Wow.....only 250 feet needed for takeoff! That thing must have the lift characteristics of a box kite.....lol.

Pretty risky stuff though, landing on the highway like that. Could have caused some cars to have accidents. Imagine talking to your insurance agent:

driver: Yeah.....I had to veer off the road suddenly to avoid a big collision, and struck a sign pole.

agent: What was it? A stalled car or truck?

driver: An airplane.

agent: I'm sorry.....could you repeat that?

Yeah, and it looked like he did not land even close to the start of the exit ramp. It must have decent brakes on it. Anyways, glad he is alright and ended up on his way again.

I know exactly where this happened. As a matter of fact my brother and I stopped at that Kwik Trip the day of its grand opening a few years ago. He owns a property out in Stacey and we were going out there to do some work on it. Pretty cool. Thanks for the post.

A good landing is one you can walk away from. A *great* landing is when you can also reuse the aircraft!
