Shane Osborne Wants To Be Nebraska's Treasurer
The Navy pilot hailed as a hero when
his EP-3 collided with a Chinese fighter and made a forced landing
on Hainan Island four years ago wants to be a money manager --
Nebraska's money manager.
Shane Osborn (right) vaulted to national prominence when he beat
the odds, safely guiding his stricken aircraft to an emergency
landing on a Chinese island after a 7,500-foot post-collision
uncontrolled dive. None of the 24 people aboard the aircraft was
hurt, but they were held prisoner for eleven tense days.
He's now running for Nebraska State Treasurer, facing incumbent
Ron Ross in a May 2006 primary election.
Osborne, 31, had reportedly been thinking about a run for the US
Senate. But after talking it over with his wife and young children,
he said, he decided to go for state office instead. He currently
works as an aviation insurance broker in Omaha.
