Someone e-mailed this to me.

My exwife, the pilot.


My ex-wife started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce started and she got her license shortly before our divorce was final, later that same year.

Yesterday afternoon, she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting when she was forced to make an emergency landing in Southern Tennessee because of bad weather.

Thank God our kids were with me this weekend.

The NTSB issued a preliminary report, citing pilot error: Judy was flying a single engine aircraft in IFR (instrument flight rating) conditions while only having obtained a VFR (visual flight rating) rating.

The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel on board.

No one on the ground was injured.

The photograph below was taken at the scene and shows the extent of damage to her aircraft.

She was very lucky.

Pretty funny Patty.


BTW we didn't go to the game after all last night. I didn't like the way Don's eyes looked, and he seemed so tired. At our age it good to read the body, so we chose to stay home and it was good, as he took a long long nap. Driving across LA in traffic is 2.5 hours. I'll call Kaleb this morn to see how the game went, and hopefully be able to see his last one next week.

Love and Hugs
Hope you and Abe are doing well.
