Apologies for the attempt at humor in the title of this story. Yesterday, a pilot took off from Thun Field in Washington state in his Cessna 182 when his engine failed. He made it about 150 feet into the air, tried to turn around for a “normal” emergency landing, but didn’t quite make it.
Instead, he hit a fence, then bounced off a storage yard filled with portable toilets.
The plane did not make it through the ordeal undamaged, but the pilot was able to get out of his plane and walk away, all thanks to the cushioning effect of the portapotty.
