Pilot Lands On Road In Vermont

Mon Mar 01, 2004 10:59 pm

A private pilot successfully landed a Beech Bonanza on a state highway in Vermont yesterday. He and 3 passengers walked away from it after he lost power at 7500 feet and could not make it to an airport. He passed under a bridge during his rollout. Story is on the following link, which is slow....but hey, what isn't in Vermont?

This link is to the story. There is a picture of the plane on the newspapers' home page.
