    My ex wife was in a plane crash

    Some of you may know my ex-wife.

    She had started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce started (1996)
    and she got her license shortly before our divorce was final, later that same year.

    Yesterday afternoon, she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting
    when she was forced to make an emergency landing in Southern Sask. because of bad weather.

    Some could call it a crash; an accident at the least. Thankfully our daughter was with me this weekend.

    National Transportation Safety Board officials have issued a preliminary determination citing pilot error contributed to the accident. Darlene was flying a single engine aircraft (a basic model, at best) 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.

    Attached photographs below were taken at the scene show the extent of damage to her aircraft. She was very lucky.

    I'm actually surprised that she survived, judging from the angle of approach and the amount of fuselage buried in the ground on impact !
