Not very! I had to land one of my planes on a highway once due to low oil pressure. Cost me a fortune to get it hauled back to the hangar!

The plane in this clip seems to have hit the car in front with its right wing. I bet that cost an even bigger fortune to fix. :O

Rooster, maybe you could have just taxi-ed it along, back to its hangar...you could take care to stay within the speed limit, and surely those things have R & L turn signals among all their lights??? You could give all the commuters something to talk about at dinner that night! :silly:

They used to have a lot to talk about when I flew my BF-109 upside down over the freeway!! :D

You're lucky a WW2 vet didn't pull over and get out a rifle from his trunk, and then try to shoot you down. :D

I always try to yield the right-of-way to them whenever they do this... :angel:

That car in front would have done well to follow your policy. :)

While I prefer to pilot a car (I dislike flying), who knows, if this fad holds, we may be seeing more multiple uses for our "highways and bi-ways."

Speed up in front.I’m landing!

by

Yes...surely those planes have horns they can honk, just in case!

by

I can't really blame the guy in the car up front for not speeding up or pulling over to the shoulder, it all happened so fast and unexpectedly. I mean, how many motorists can say they were rear-ended by a plane?   :O

by

Yes history is being made...makes you wonder who had both onsite camera AND presence of mind to record this...including that irritating rear-bump...

I wondered about that myself... it seems to have been taken by an elevated traffic surveillance camera. That part of the clip is marked "Minnesota Department of Transportation," and the closeup of the car and the plane is marked "Ramsey County Deputy's Federation." Ramsey County is just north of St. Paul.
