Small Plane Lands On I-94 Outside Racine, WI

Tue Oct 23, 2012 10:06 pm

Didn't see this posted, or if it is, I couldn't find it. Last night a Beechcraft C90 overshot the runway at Sylvania Airport and rolled onto I94 near Racine Wisconsin at about 6:30PM Monday. Two on board, all appear to be OK. Actually it was closer to Sturtevant, Wisconsin, which is the European spelling of my last name.  http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local&id=8856340

I got my PPL at C89. It is not an airport for the faint of heart. Dodging the orange Schneider trucks on I-94 as you come in for 26 is always an adventure. Glad nobody was seriously injured.
