Cessna Takeoff Crash

December 17, 2008

The 794-hour private pilot made an uneventful emergency landing on a public highway following a loss of engine power due to fuel starvation. Several attempts were made by the pilot to have the aircraft placed on a flatbed trailer and recovered to a suitable airport; however, the width of the trailer available for recovery was too narrow to accommodate the airplane’s main landing gear. After several failed attempts to recover the airplane by ground, the pilot elected to fill the fuel tanks with 15 gallons of fuel and, in coordination with local law enforcement, attempt to takeoff from the private highway. Vehicular traffic was stopped in preparation of the airplane’s takeoff from the highway. During the takeoff roll from the highway, the airplane’s right wing collided with a side mirror of an 18-wheel truck and then struck the rear of an emergency vehicle. The collision with the vehicles made the airplane turn sharply to the right into a ditch, subsequently impacting trees.

    Something like that happened near where I live, only the plane didnt crash. The Cessna had to make an emergency landing and it landed on the street and nearly took down some power lines. They towed it into the airport and took down the fence and the pilot flew out the Cessna that next day

    San Andreas is semi realistic. The planes have better phisycs and there is wind, too.

    And you can land on roads and takeoff from them too. Just gotta use the rudder to avoid clipping poles & cars.

    How does this remind you of GTA? that game is in no way realistic.

    If you look closely you can see the wingtip hit the mirror of the large truck before the major impact with the small truck.
