Heart braking, but yet inspiring: :(

A 7-year old girl, being the lone survivor of a plane crash that killed her family walks to safety with minor injuries in nothing but shorts, T-shirt and one sock (no shoes): How 7-year-old Sailor Gutzler survived a plane crash, Washington Post, 5 Jan 2015.


For those of you who do fly for real (and those who go far by road in unpopulated areas): Be prepared, AOPA

A quote from the above (which to a large degree would be overcome with by filing a VFR flight plan and by basic wilderness training, see the article) (my emphasis):
A 2007 study published in a journal of wilderness emergency medicine found a 99-percent exposure mortality rate for uninjured victims whose rescue was delayed beyond 51 hours.

How cruel life can be! A true heartbreaker!
Don't hesitate to let me know if I'm incorrect or just annoying! As long as you do it gently! :)

Interesting firefighting training incident. Stated to be caused by a malfunctioning a water/oil separator causing the water tank used for training to be contaminated by jet fuel. :?

:shock: I think that is the lowest final I have ever seen.

I've seen that video before. And yeah, it was way tooo low to be considered normal. I wonder if the pilot got some disciplinary action. I think it landed way before the markers in the runway... :shock:

Now that is just silly. Jet fuel and extinguisher sitting together waiting to have some sort of malfunction or confusion between the two??

@ HJ1AN: If I understood it correct they had the drainage from the fire exercise area collected to not pollute the nearby area (and ground water). In order to reuse the water they had a separator that would make it possible to dispose of any lighter substances, like diesel and jet fuel, in a environmentally responsible way. I think the reused water was pumped to hydrants in the exercise area.

By the way: Just imagine an engine failure on that low final, even a single one... :?

@ legoboyvdlp: That is exactly what happened. You can see the fireball to the right at 1:22.


Here is something else for you:
Vought F-8 Crusader pilot has air-to-air refueling mishap, ejection fails, parachute fails, falls 15,000 ft into the ocean and survives to tell the story. :shock: :D But got lots and lots of severe injuries though... :?

Isn't odd how some thing that can seem like a bad thing (the car crash in Texas) turn out to be lifesaving?

How so? And what car crash that saves lives?

Did you read the article Johan G posted?

Near the end of the article when he (the pilot) was in the hospital the doctor asked:

He said, You have a long scar on your abdomen. How did it get there? I told him about a serious auto accident I’d had four years earlier in Texas, and that my spleen had been removed at that time.

......
He said that if I had had a spleen, it almost certainly would have ruptured when I hit the water, and I would have bled to death. Of the 25 pilots in our squadron, I am the only one without a spleen.


That is what I was referring too.
