    Even more amazing is that due to the hefty dihedral of the wing and the top of the wing mounted power plants, they managed to not zing those giant blades on the runway!

    Did actually touch bottom ever so slightly but no real damage and back to work she went.

    I am reminded that EVERY plane crash shares one common denominator:

    NEGATIVE AIRSPACE BELOW WINGS !

    After each flight they all make their comments (debrief) about what was good, what was bad, with critical statements and analysis of their own flight actions.
    Each leads off in turn with "Just Glad to be Here"

    Default 2019-08-02 SR7 Emergency Landing - Somewhere in Washington State

    Aug 1, 2019
    On a City boulevard somewhere in Washington State, a State Trooper was in the right place at the right time to catch this EMERGENCY LANDING and provide escort traffic control in the process.

    Good job, Pilot, and kudos to this fine LEO as well!!!
