Flying accident


Some of you may know my ex-wife, Judy.
She had started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce
Started (1975) and she got her license shortly before our divorce was
final,later that same year.
Yesterday afternoon, she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she
Was piloting when she was forced to make an emergency landing in Southern Tennessee because of bad weather.

Some could call it a crash; an accident at the least. Our kids were
with me at the Beach House this weekend.

National Transportation Safety Board officials have issued a
preliminary
>>determination citing pilot error contributed to the accident, and
Judy was flying a single engine aircraft (a basic model, at best) in IFR (instrument flight rating) conditions while only having obtained a VFR (visual Flight rating) rating.

The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel
On board. No one on the ground was injured.
Photographs below were taken at the scene show the extent of damage
to her aircraft.
She was very lucky.


I don't care who you are, this was funny!!!!!



Thanks Barry & Louise D.
