Plane gets a bovine licking after emergency touchdown

送信時刻:
 
A herd of beef cattle at Te Horo, Kāpiti, surround a plane that touched down in their paddock on Sunday.

It was Sunday afternoon and Bryn Whyman was sitting at his Te Horo, Kāpiti, home looking out the window. "All of a sudden we saw a plane coming down onto the [paddock]," he said.

Hardly a "crash" landing as stated by one person. Obviously does not know the difference between a crash (broken and cut up aeroplane) and a very well executed touch down [:>)

I trained as a pilot in New Zealand back in the 1990s and it was a lot of fun, but very challenging. There's one airport with train tracks running across the runway; you have to watch for the signal and break off your approach if a train is coming.

With the changeable weather, hilly terrain and very few airports, it's not hospitable if you lose an engine. But the people are so friendly and laid back, it was a really amazing place to live.

They just wanted to beef up the plane!

Doesn't look like a "crash landing" to me, but rather a very well-executed emergency landing. Here in Australia, aircraft land on paddock airstrips all the time as a matter of course. In fact being in NZ the paddock there was possibly a lot better and safer than some of the "bush strips" in Oz.

"The pilot was calm and explained that they liked to lick planes." Was his name Dagg?
I can't wait to go back to NZ.

The New Zealanders do boast that their sports teams normally licks any opposition.

Any licking you can walk away from is a good licking.

Curious bovine is a known hazard in the sailplane community.

I seem to remember the technique for x-wind landings with a forward slip: Bank into the wind and apply full opposite udder... If you get my drift. Don't want to end up a 'cows celebre'. Watch out if the aircraft is a jumbo, like a Bovine 747.
