Tree assisted landing!

Recommended Posts

This one has been all over the news and social media recently.  quite spectacular to watch and amazingly the pilot got away with minor injuries.

Glad there were no fatalities. It's not often a tree actually saves the occupant, the pilot could have been worse off crashing elsewhere. Still, it looked like I was watching a WWE match the way that tree smacked that poor plane down.:stars:

We don't know what was just out of shot, so the tree might have been the best option.

 

Still, any landing you can walk (or hobble) away from . . .

First time I watched this I expected the tree to spring back launching the aircraft back into the air, albeit temporarily.
