Hand-propped runaway?

Postby mmike » Fri Jun 17, 2016 8:05 am

Jack H,
OFLotW Fodder... sort of. National news (incl CBS) on June 15-16 was showing a viral video of a yellow taildragger taxiing in circles in a field, with the 9-1-1 phone call of the pilot or a bystander reporting that the plane got moving by itself and was doing random circles. Emergency personnel could not safely approach so they wanted until fuel exhaustion. Not a landing, certainly off-field; but made for a great video, which is a course a staple of the podcast. :-)
