Truly A Bad Day

Truly a bad day for this aviator.  An unplanned landing, then he winds up on the train tracks.

Bodycam footage of first responders extricating him from his aircraft seconds before it gets run down by a train.  In retrospect, he did live through it, so that is in his favor.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

May father, second generation Southern Pacific, hit 2 sugar cane haulers and a gasoline hauler, but never an airplane! Good the pilot got out. Dad had nightmares for years after that gas truck accident -- driver burned alive. I suspect most folks don't think about the railroad engineer's fallout from collisions.

Agree with Juvat!

Looks like any landing you can walk away from or be dragged out of, But he missed all the nearby power distribution lines nearby.

The insurance report will be entertaining. ." aircraft was hit by a speeding train...."
