Today's award goes to the pilot of a small executive jet that landed (sort of) in Telluride, CO a few days ago.
A small plane crashed at the Telluride Airport on Wednesday afternoon. The airport was closed for snow removal at the time of the crash ... the plane landed and collided with a snowplow on the runway. The San Miguel Sheriff said the pilot did not radio the airport before landing.
There's more at the link.
The pilot didn't radio the airport before landing; he obviously didn't check NOTAM's that would have warned him that the airport was closed; and he missed seeing a bloody great snowplow at work on the runway! Where, precisely, was his head during the landing? Where was he looking?
Oh, well . . . at least he won't be flying that jet out of there. Pictures at the link show it's missing its right wing. I suspect it won't be flying anywhere again. (Indeed, I daresay the missing wing might soon be hung on the wall of the garage for the airport snowplow - as a trophy!)
