14:31:21@aaron:raim.istAaron Raimistand of course, read the FAA glider flying handbook
14:31:54@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDdone ;)
14:33:57@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDmy instructors also recommended reading parts of the FAA pilot handbook and I also have a pre-solo glider basics book
14:34:16@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDit's just been a while and I should review
14:35:31@aaron:raim.istAaron RaimistYeah PHAK is also going to be useful

22:16:24@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDhttps://www.wcvb.com/article/small-plane-crashes-into-wooded-area-in-sterling/31405010 that's at the airport where I usually fly
22:23:12@brad:koehn.comBrad KoehnSorry, man; that's really hard. Loss of thrust on takeoff is something we powered pilots need to be prepared for.
22:25:37@aaron:raim.istAaron RaimistIs there any more information on how bad the injuries were?
22:25:45@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDnone yet that I can find
22:26:00@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDthat's why I linked the news report with a video
22:27:23@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDI was trying to see what could've happened, but I'll just wait for more details to come out rather than speculate
22:28:13@aaron:raim.istAaron RaimistJust looking at Google Maps it looks like there are lots of trees around the airport
22:28:48@aaron:raim.istAaron RaimistDo you have a sense of where the plane is in relation to the airport?
22:28:53@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDYeah. The area off that end of the runway is swampy, but it has enough trees in it that I wouldn't want to land there
22:29:45@kb1rd:kb1rd.netKB1RDI thought I read that it stalled after takeoff, so probably right of the end
22:37:35@aaron:raim.istAaron RaimistOh yeah the first few frames of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnhFalClHtg show where it is

23:16:17@aaron:raim.istAaron RaimistI didn’t realize you knew his. His videos are pretty great.

20:21:33@brad:koehn.comBrad KoehnLanding on a road, or worse yet on a busy freeway, is one of those things you really hope you never have to do, but sometimes it’s your best option. Things often go poorly, but not this time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDSxIDMpdKY
