“ was attempting to land the plane while taking off”. This always makes the prop come off. Or so I’ve heard.

The pilot posted on a facebook page yesterday. Sounds like he had an aileron cable break and had to roll it completely around to touch down right side up. :shock:

Luckily everyone will be ok.

I can't see a lot of marks from sliding along the snow, but there's a lot less damage than i'd expect from a single hit. Maybe the snow is crustier on top than it looks.

Built in 1993... That's an old Lancair.

He wrote it on the Alberta GA Facebook page, saying he was the pilot, but it looks like the comment was later deleted. Maybe because he realized his plane didnt have aileron cables, haha no idea what happened to it, but someone screen shot the original post

Also it maybe isn't a good idea as far as your insurance coverage is concerned to post your account of what happened before a proper investigation is conducted. I assumed that's why it was deleted.
