Prepared for Mechanical Failure


At the Monticello, Iowa fly-In last Sunday a pilot hand starts his plane to leave the airport before a line of thunderstorms rolls through. He is wearing a blue parachute harness as a precaution to inflight equipment failure. A few minutes later he departed without issue ahead of the rain. Hopefully the pilot and plane will return to next year's breakfast fly-in. Know that.
