Man walks away after plane crash landing in Ingham

Recommended Posts

Well, as the saying goes - any crash you can walk away from, is a good one! What better place to crash, than an airstrip?! :cheezy grin:

 

A later report says he flipped it, and the aircraft also caught fire? He's a lucky lad, then.

Carlo's Lightwing???  (Just a guess as it was up for sale)  Glad the pilot is ok.  Cheers

That link was back in 2014. 

There was a Storch that flipped on landing a couple of days ago though.

No. On his way South from Innisfail to Dysart. Landed at Ingham due to Weather and crashed it whilst  landing.

They say that a good landing is one that you can walk away from, but that a GREAT  landing is one where the Flying Appliance is re-useable. . .

Whatever ERA those sayings belong to they are irrelevant to NOW where we OWN our planes. A "great" landing is when no one knows when you actually touched down. except IF the runway has a lot of water on it , where you will aquaplane and/or burn a big flat on the tyre(s)  so a squeeky landing  is not aimed for .
