Learning To Fly Crash

A student pilot managed to land his aircraft. This would not be news, of course had he landed on the runway in a normal fashion. Instead, he landed his plane directly on top of another plane piloted by his next-door neighbor.

For a learner pilot, it is embarrassing enough that you have brought your plane in to land on top of another aircraft that was on the runway.

But when that other plane belongs to your next-door neighbour, the situation reaches a whole new level of humiliation.

Despite the odds, that is exactly what happened at Roanoke airport near Dallas in Texas when one rookie pilot attempted to touch down.

A perfect three-point landing. Wrong three points, however. Nobody was hurt in the incident, so by one old definition, this was a good landing. I see a great future for the student pilot, however. In modern art!
