Ex-Wife - Pilot

Recommended Posts

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.


Yesterday afternoon I got a phone call, that she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting. Seems she was forced to make an emergency landing in Stibbington because of bad weather. Thank God the kids weren't with her.


The CAA 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).


The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel on board. No one on the ground was injured.


The photograph below was taken at the scene to show the extent of damage to her aircraft.


She was really lucky.
