1 MY X AND HER FLYING LESSONS, on Mon Apr 21, 2008 9:28 pm

rosco 357

My ex-wife started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce started and she got her license shortly before our divorce was final, later that same year.
I got word yesterday afternoon that she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting when she was forced to make an emergency landing in South Alabama because of bad weather. Thank God no one was with her.
The NTSB issued a preliminary report, citing pilot error: She was flying a single engine aircraft in IFR (instrument flight rating) conditions while only having obtained a VFR (visual flight rating) rating.
The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel on board. No one on the ground was injured.
Photographs below were taken at the scene and show the extent of damage to her aircraft.
She was very lucky. See picture below
