I Just arrived at work and have officers standing by for the FAA at the Skiatook municipal airport; evidently a student was lifting off for his first solo flight and turned the aircraft on its side. there was no injuries, just spilled fuel and an expensive 'whoops'! :D

maybe he'd be a good candidate for employment with Air-Evac?

Thank goodness nobody's hurt, just their pride. My instructor at the rc field one day was teaching me how to land my rc plane and at the end of the runway was ditch with an abandoned gator hole in it. The
plane was coasting in and he came in a little too short and the plane
landed, you guessed it right in the abandoned gator hole. However at
the time I didn't no that the gator was empty lol :). Needless to say
the plane was recovered with out damages.

I think they resurfaced & extended it a couple years ago... or maybe they were just talking about it :roll:
