Plane Makes Safe Landing At IGM
The pilot of a Glasair II sport plane was no doubt surprised
when the plane's left door departed the aircraft while in flight...
but that pilot probably wasn't as shocked as the Kingman, AZ family
KPHO-5 in Phoenix reports Cory Cobanovich was barbecuing with
the rest of his family Sunday, when his brother saw an object
falling. Seconds later, a loud boom came from the backyard.
"(It) sounded like someone picked up a gas grill and threw it
over the fence," Cory said. "It was one of the loudest, most
obnoxious noises I've ever heard."
The source of that 'obnoxious' nose soon became clear... when
Cobanovich found the left-side gullwing door of the plane in his
swimming pool. He called the Kingman Police Department, and Sgt.
Bob Fisk came out to retrieve the part.
"(I've) been here 15 years and never had a call like that," Fisk
said. "I thought it was kind of unbelievable."
Meanwhile, the Glasair made a safe emergency landing at the
Kingman Airport (IGM.) The FAA sent an investigator to look into
the incident, and at this point it's not known why the door
departed the aircraft.
