You are sure that this is no staged viral PR-stunt?

The roads in Cumbria tend to be quite narrow, not straight for very long and lined with stone walls. Add all the road side obstructions we have, poles, wires, signs, etc. and it would not end well. Even in relatively sparsely populated areas like Cumbria, there is always some road traffic about, so there is always the chance of meeting a car coming the other way.

Pity that wall got in the way at the end.

Best regards,

Jim

A HD crash registration from the forehead of the pilot. There must be a first for everything I guess.

Very handy for the authorities I guess.

Nice video.
I have been in several tense situations on light aircraft as PIC, I have never had a forced off-airport landing. But this guy just seemed to mess it up right near the end. He horribly miscalculated his speed and range, and picked the wrong field. While watching the video (before even learning of the outcome (wall)) I was just shaking my head at his mistakes as he sets himself up for the final.

Is that a prop blade sticking in the grass ? I think so.

Quoting vald (Reply 9):

As I understand it, pan is a step below mayday, meaning you have a serous situation, though it is not immediately an emergency. An example I know of is a pilot of a light aircraft not getting three greens on lowering gear to go into an uncontrolled strip, on calling pan pan pan he got another aircraft in the vicinity to formate with him and visually confirm gear deployment. Turned out to be a broken light circuit and the gear was down fine in this example. As he had fuel in hand, the situation was not an emergency in the pilots mind hence using pan rather than mayday, if the other pilot had confirmed a stuck up gear, he may have called mayday.
