Perhaps now American Aviation will expand their training curriculum to include 'landing' as well as 'flying'...

Good point there, anyone can fly by jumping a building it's the troublesome landing procedure that gets you every time.

Ah, Meadowlake...that's where two classmates and I rented an airplane our senior year to go see the away game at Arkansas.

We never made it, but the trees we hit weren't that big (but they were big enough to cushion the impact). Airplane didn't make it. We did.

Long story...

P.S. Yeah, we lost to Arkansas. This was before we got rid of coach Martin retired.

Why'd he try to land in the tree when there's a perfectly good set of wires just to his right?

Hmmpf. 'Nother "clear-eyed, buoyant extrovert" just had his insurance rates raised...
