When their plane came back to earth in a Plettenberg Bay suburb in South Africa on Sunday, a pilot and his passenger had a lucky escape.
The RV sport plane’s engine failed while flying over the holiday town, forcing the pilot to make a “forced lob,” or forced landing in aviation jargon.
A local police were dispatched to Bowtie Drive “at about 11:52” to find the plane had landed on a public road, according to SAPS spokesperson Sgt Chries Spies.
According to reports gathered from a reliable source, there were no injuries recorded.
However, photos taken at the scene and circulated on the aviation forum Avcom showed a significant damage to the plane.
A deep gash was sustained on the right wing, most likely as a result of striking and uprooting a small tree while landing.
When the plane’s nose collided with an electric gate and knocked it off its rails, the propeller and engine cowling were severely damaged.
Many Avcom posters, many of whom are pilots, expressed their gratitude for the pilot and passenger being able to “walk away” from the accident.
