Non-Typical day of sailing in San Diego

Yesterday, shortly after passing near this area in the bay, a plane made an emergency landing. Needless to say not a typical day of Bay Sailing in San Diego, Fortunately, everybody walked (swam) away safely.

Miracle on the Bay?

In seriousness though, that could have gone a fair sight worse.

Re: Non-Typical day of sailing in San Diego

I saw the exact same scenario unfold a few years back in Howe Sound, BC.. similar plane, similar approach. Same 'splash'.. and again, the same survival. Several sailing friends were not far off (I watched it from a pier at work) and the plane obviously was trying to get close to them. They recovered all the swimmers - one of the kids on board (the rescue boat) recovered one wheel from the landing gear... investigators tracked them down and took it back!

One thing.. while they were obviously trying to get close to the boats nearby, they ended up splashing downwind in 15 knots breeze.. had they been able to go the other way (but farther from rescue) their actual impact speed would have been much less..

Glad that, once again, everyone's alright..
