Got a Pilot Friend? This Bud's for You.
No pilot would order this piece for themselves. You have to do it for 'em. Then pin it on the bulletin board at the local flight center. In this particular case, "results".....are GUARANTEED !!

Light Planes Hangs in Wires

Pilot Feels Lucky to be Alive

Pilot Casey Jones says he feels lucky to be alive after an incident which left 30,000 without power for twelve hours yesterday.
"I was flying with my wife at about 4000 feet over the edge of town. We were sort of, you know, making out," Jones admitted a little sheepishly. "We've done it before. It was no big deal. But, well, I don't know---something just went wrong. Next thing I knew, the plane had stalled. I tried to recover, but a part of my wife's clothing got hooked on the yoke, and I couldn't push it forward."
That kept the plane in a stall for about 3700 feet. With only 300 feet to spare, Mr. Jones was able to start recovering from the stall, but he still couldn't miss the wires.
"Sure it was scary," said the pilot. "We figured we'd bought the farm. If it hadn't been for the wires, we probably would have hit one of the buildings."
The FAA is investigating, and will decide later whether or not to cite the private pilot.
"We see quite a few of these," said John Kenny, FAA inspector. "I investigate maybe 20 cases a year."
The plane was extracted from the power lines by crane later in the day.
There were no reported injuries.
