Aero-News: Quote of the Day

ANN's Quote of the Day usually derives from current news, though we reserve the right to pick quotes out of history that have a bearing on the day's events and issues.

Sometimes, you'll find them timely and in keeping with the content of the day's news... and sometimes, they'll just be thought-provoking.

Reader suggestions and comments are welcome... and if particularly intriguing, timely, or poignant, may themselves become future Quotes of the Day.

Let us hear from you, folks!

Aero-News Quote of the Day

"Now here is the funny part. I hit the forest floor, jump out of the plane (just in case it was about to explode), see that I'm 100% ok and holler (F---) Yeah! Survey my surroundings, thinking I'm way deep in the forest! Getting dark, I'll be spending the night and they're going to pluck me out in the morning with a helicopter. That'll be kinda cool, I've never flown in a helicopter. Then I get back in the plane to get on the radio to let ATC know I'm ok. As I'm talking to an airliner on 121.5, I hear a woosh go by, was that a car? Nahh, can't be, I'm in the middle of the damn forest. Finish my radio talk, I'm walking around and sure as shit, I see the top of a truck go whizzing by. I landed 20 yards from a paved one-lane road... My lucky day!"
