Comeon! He's Irish! I wonder what his alcohol-blood content was! (reversed on purpose before someone corrects me!)

WOW

If we believe that article it would mean the C210 has a left wing only 10 feet long for a total of 20 feet total. The fuel tank (left on the ground in Ireland) was at the tip. Man who the heck writes this stuff!!!



It's probably been like that for 2 weeks.....MEL#23-45-41 COntrol #849354 Cat D

Sees the fuel plummet 2 hours later? Idiot! Bet a NASA report isn't going to help much on that one either. A guy like that should lose his license forever. Just a matter of time before he plays lawn dart with a plane.

Another piece of marketing for Cessna - even with 1 wing the good ole plane still does what it does best.

60 years ago American-made planes routinely flew in UK with large pieces of the airframe missing. Maybe they're used to it?

However, I'm still sticking to my theory that its because he's Irish.

Pilot tool of the year award goes to......Drunk Irish pilot and engineer pax. His amazing story of losing a wing on take off and staying up for nearly 2 hours before his fuel ran out. An amazing and awe inspiring story. Where's the book deal???
