    My ex-wife started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce started 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 Illinois because of bad weather.

    Thank God our kids were with me this weekend.

    The NTSB issued a preliminary report, citing pilot error: Terri was flying a single engine aircraft 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.

    The photograph below was taken at the scene and shows the extent of damage to her aircraft.

    She was very lucky.












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

    This is the first thing I've read online today and it's a good thing my coffee isn't done brewing yet. It would be all over my computer screen. As a former pilot (got bored with low n slow) I was already chiding her for her blatant stupidity. The "low on fuel" reminded me of once when I took off from an airport near Fort Worth, TX without properly preflighting my airplane and got over the downtown area and noticed both fuel gauges pegged squarely on empty!
