Luck, or the Gods has nothing to do with it!

In my world, when a pilot survives, it has more to do with skill! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Robert "Bob" Robertson crashed the twin-engine Beechcraft he was flying shortly after leaving Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport on Sept. 21. Robertson, 34, was the only person aboard the aircraft and no one was injured on the ground.

"I knew that I was going to die. The idea at that point is to try not to take a lot of people with you," Robertson said.

Robertson said he decided to try and land on a grassy piece of land near Interstate 95 after an engine shut down.

"I was shocked I survived," he said. "There was nothing left of the airplane, nothing except me and the seat. Everything else was debris. There was no pain, but I realized my injuries were severe."

Doctors have predicted he will make a full recovery, Robertson said.

Robertson said he has kept busy, despite casts on his left leg and arm. His girlfriend accepted his marriage proposal Thursday. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
