RAF Veteran Walks Away From Glider Mishap
Any landing you can walk away from,
right? That's gotta work for 72-year old Hugh Stevenson.
The retired accountant and RAF veteran took off Sunday from the
Cairngorm Flying Club’s grass airstrip at Feshiebridge. As he
made his approach to return to the strip, he ran out of height and
crashed in a stand of pine trees.
A flying club member told the Daily Scotsman, "He apparently
managed to extract himself from the aircraft and walked away, a bit
battered and bruised, but otherwise fine." Stevenson did not
require hospital treatment.
Bang-up good show, old boy.
