The HARDEST ditching ever!

Postby AirportDude » Fri Jan 20, 2017 4:47 pm

What looks like a Piper Cub made a hard landing on a frozen lake in Michigan last week. The only problem was, the lake apparently wasn't completely frozen!!!

Trying to find updates to this story...

Switching to advisory, squawking VFR. Good day!

Yes, it was a Cub. Authorities finally "fished" the plane out of the lake on the 12th.
