Three people are counting their blessings after their aircraft crash-landed onto State Road 40 recently. According to reports, the three walked away from the airplane accident with minor injuries when their single-engine Luscombe aircraft had to make an emergency landing on the afternoon of June 25. The 36-year-old pilot and his two passengers were returning to Sanford from a visit to Cedar Key when the aircraft began having engine problems. The pilot made an emergency landing in a field next to S.R. 40.
A wing struck a tree, and the plane crashed through a fence during the landing, forcing the airplane into a ditch, which caused the plane to flip upside-down and come to rest on the highway. The pilot has had his license since 2007, and the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the aviation accident.
While the pilot and passengers are very lucky to walk away from the accident, many Florida airplane accidents end in tragedy.
