  2. Appears they turned out to the left and landed just a mile from the field on Hwy 29

  3. the most dangerous part of any flight, the departure... Flight didn't even last a whole minute, not enough ADS-B data to even theorize what happened, but a wild guess is engine failure of one of a dozen possible reasons (my first is always fuel related, or lack of). Glad the pilot was ok, but that left wing doesn't look too happy. Ouch.

    1. oh that's weird, I was commenting on the Piper N39628 that did a hard emergency landing in West Palm Beach, not this Cherokee... somehow my comment got posted here (?) weird. Yeah, this one is fine.

  4. Photos show schmutz on the front end. Not sure there is wing damage.

    2. I got a little chuckle out of that third photo with the aircraft in the parking lot of an Advance Auto Parts store. I've seen cars with their hoods up smoking and steaming, there but never an airplane needing help!

  5. Looks like they may have simply towed it back to the airport

  6. I was flying out of GMU listening in on GSP Approach. In short order, you heard the pilot call out mayday, and 5sec later announce "landing in the street." Understandably, no transmissions after that other than approach announcing the fire dispatch. It's eerie listening to that unfold while your up in the air yourself. It made my heart sink. Once I landed and got the plane put away, I was so relieved to hop on the internet to read they made a safe landing. Well done!
