It was I, CptCrnch56@aol.com. This happened in 1973 while I was alone in the
vehicle. An 83 yr. old male driver cut right in front of me while I was
traveling 50 mph.



I had one heck of a headache for a few days buy other than that everything
else went well.

WHEW! It sure looked like it should have turned out worse than that.
I'll but you've heard that a couple of times! Did ya get her fixed?
Do you still have her?

I've been in a couple of rollovers. My '92 Ford Ranger "fell over"
one January 1st (nuff said) on my own private property. I was also in
a Cessna 172 (6/25/78) when we ran out of fuel on our way back from
Angel Falls (Venezuela) we made a perfect 4 or 5 point landing, took
out a barb wire fence ending upside down. All walked away with ruined
underwear and a few scratches.

<font FACE="arial,helvetica"><font SIZE="2">John, Sounds like we are good at landings. (Anyone that you can walk away
from is a Good landing.)



I landed a Float plane on a local lake and as it was March a real strong tail
wind picked the tail of the plane up and over. The water was cold and I had a
tough time getting out underwater. Both the plane and I only got wet. Sure
must have looked Stupid sitting on the bottom of the pontoon waiting for the
locals to come to my rescue.





Amphi has a new windshield frame I welded in from a parts car I (*ouch* ) cut
up. Who knew back then. Straightened the rear fins and awaiting paint and a
new top that I have had in the box for ......too long.
