The pilot of the Cessna 172 which flew from southern Canada to Missouri in the United States and landed on a highway was actually trying to be shot down and killed. It didn't work, thanks to great work on the part of the F-16 pilots, and he is presently in custody. Born in Turkey and now a Canadian citizen, Adam Dylan Leon age 31, has been arrested and charged with illegal entry and transportation of stolen property.
At least this incident resulted in no harm to anyone, and Mr. Leon will learn a hard lesson.
On a personal note, my father in law passed away and the family is busy with arrangements for the funeral, so I may not be posting for a few days. My wife is also a pilot, and she is having a hard time dealing with the death of her father.
Lastly, I will be moving my blog to a Word Press platform in the near future, which means the RSS Feed and url will change. When I am ready to make the change I will let you all know. There will be some very interesting additions which I am sure everyone will find interesting and informative.
Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
