5 Of The Weirdest Plane Emergency Landing Locations

5) Plane Loses A Propeller And Lands On A Racetrack

79 year-old airplane pilot, Jack Barnett, doesn’t know what exactly what caused his propeller to come off of his small aircraft, but when it did, he knew exactly what to do. Not being close to an airport, the first thought was the highway, but he did not want to have to worry about cars or injuring people. The next thought that entered his mind was the racetrack that was in close proximity, so that is where he headed after the plane lost power and there was little time to decide what other options he might have had. The racetrack looked flat from above (according to Jack), but upon landing in a large ditch, he realized that it was bumpier than he had first realized. Jack came out unharmed, but when his wife had asked about the damage to his plane, he replied, “Well, I got a broken main gear, broken nose gear and of course no prop.”
