    According to the news report he called in with engine trouble shortly after take-off.

    The pilot is a local instructor/A+P. Probably knew about the lines. Maybe he did have engine trouble.
    What's a go-around?

    He will be getting billed for "loss of power production" from the agency who owns the lines, on top of everything else. I know this from my crane business. Or so I've heard... Lucky SOB all in all.

    Glad he was able to get free of the plane, and rescue personnel were on scene quickly to render aid. Getting out of a plane in the water isn’t as easy as it looks, particularly if injured.

    Power lines will be repaired. Those suckers are HARD to see, particularly if not marked.

    Oops, darn it...

    Op Ed:

    He didn’t know about the wires, or didn’t remember.
    He had recently purchased the cub from a well known instructor in Maine, who offered some instruction at the sale but offer was declined.

    Installed new 35’s, starting offering instruction.

    “Almost witness” saw him flying low up the river and knew about the wires ahead and “waited for the sound of the crash and then dialed 911”.

    After the crash the pilot was able to swim to shore, but it must have been a struggle. He is now in a Boston hospital with a broken back in multiple places.

    Cub had 400 smoh, engine was “best thing on it” per seller.

    Lucky for sure.
    Second crash related to this set of wires. Might be time for some balls to be installed.

    If you're going to be playing on a river fly overhead first and check for wires. I know, it's no fun to fly high first. It's more fun than clipping wires

    It was a sweet flying A model on floats last summer, got my rating in it up in Maine. Strong running engine at that time…

    I did my SES rating on the Colorado river at Laughlin. We had been on the lake above the dam and were returning to the river. My instructor asked "Do you see the wires?". I replied "Yes, I see the wires" then almost immediately realized there were two sets of wires and I had initially seen only one of them. That was an "Oh sh**" moment on an otherwise very enjoyable day.

    Yes, agree totally on the belt. All the jets I flew had a crotch strap to hold the belt in place. As far as the video and wires in general, when I retired I spent a year flying power line patrol in a 407. We had to take a two day course on flying in The wire environment. Very good course. Even when the mission was to be in proximity to the wires, there were two occasions when my heart was in my throat after losing sight of the conductor. Be careful.....
