Seneca students make emergency landing on highway!

By Matt | September 4, 2008

Just read some news about  a Seneca College pilot and a couple passengers made a emergency landing on a highway in North Hudson NY. They were en route to Burlington, Vt., when their engine failed. They were flying a Beechcraft Bonanza 36 (single piston aircraft).

You can here their radio transmissions here: http://torontosun.com/Video/?fr_story=1dbd0abb766667a3374f12aaf59cba436b265ada

It looks like something went wrong around 4:48pm when the airspeed and altitude decreased.¬† Altitude decreased to ~2300 ft and airspeed 80 kts. Then the airspeed and altitude climbed back up to cruise. I’m not sure how accurate flightaware is so it’s hard to determine what happened.

I’m glad to hear they are all safe and there was no plane damage..
