Just as Rhonda and Marc were preparing for the show on November 12th, a Cessna 210 was approaching it's destination at KPWK after an uneventful trip from South Dakota. ATC descended the plane to 2500 feet, a regular procedure for the RNAV/GPS 16 approach. And then it happened. A loud bang, a bunch of smoke and a stopped prop. All of this in IMC and long past sunset.
John Korinke put his training to the test, establishing best glide, notifying ATC, and getting vectors to a closer airport (C81). While he touched down short of the airport, with his landing gear safely stowed, he found himself uninjured and able to call for help and walk away from the airplane. All of us as pilots, think about the unthinkable and wonder what it's like. Will we keep our emotions in check? How will it impact our decision making?
Here's your chance to hear it first hand from the left seat. Join us Sunday night (11/19) at 8PM CDT as John relates the story with lessons learned and questions answered. Believe me, you don't want to miss this show.
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we love talking to others who share our passion for aviation. Please subscribe to the Podcast via iTunes and rate, review, and let us know what you think! BLUE SKIES and TAILWINDS!!!
