AOPA Never Again

Sep 18, 2009

Suddenly I could see a light spray of fuel pouring a mist of avgas on my leg. As I was looking for the grass strips, I spotted what looked like a hard-surface runway. … A guy drove up … walked up to me, sort of got in my face, and said, “Do you know you just landed inside a prison?” Yikes!

Although some minor variation in the fuel gauges was common in our previous plane, I was somewhat disconcerted to see that the fuel gauges in the new plane were fluctuating wildly...when I landed, I had 3.4 gallons of usable fuel left!

Something felt strange...I looked outside and finally discovered the problem: I had snagged the loop with my right main landing gear instead of the hook. Uh-Oh!
