Final non-Fiction, Nature and Feline Friday

Nature Friday host LLB Gang  and Feline Friday  host Comedy Plus

 Date: Monday, September 20, 2021
Time: 6 pm on a quiet early evening
Where: A small coastal in North Carolina
Event: single engine Cessna made and emergency landing in a farmer's field.   Top photo
Photos are from the town's FaceBook page take the next day Tuesday, September 21 just after lunch.

 Photo above is of the homes just feet away from the plane.
The home in the middle is where my daughter, SIL(son-in-law) and grandkitties
live.   This is the back of their home.  Thankfully there is a 3' wide x 5' deep ditch between their home and the farmer's field where the plane landed.

Final (non) Fiction Friday.

Now for the rest of the story:
Supper just competed for humans and kitties.
Daughter: tidying up kitchen with tv on
Son in law in the garage preparing to take recycle and trash bin to the curb.
Grand kitties in the family room taking their  25th nap of the day.
Daughter heard a noise like metal scrapping but thought SIL might have turned something over in the garage.
All of a sudden both kitties ran into the kitchen at mach speed.
Mia landed on the table, Frisco under the table. If you have ever been owned by a cat, you know they are prone to sudden burst of energy.  So this race into the kitchen did not concern my daughter.
About 30 minutes later SIL comes in the house Daughter asked
him what he turned over in the garage.  He said nothing...why. 
Then a few minutes later just as dusk is about to arrive he looks outside.
Casually says ummm what is that in the field. Daughter is reading says maybe a heron...No he says definitely not a bird it is huge.  She gets up to look and they both say 'it looks like a plane'.  Out to their deck the go YEP it was a plane.  All of a sudden emergency sirens are heard and vehicles start arriving from all the alphabet organizations:
Neighbors were all standing in the back total shock.
  It was determined the plane landed not crashed.  BUT WHY
By now it was dark and not much could be done.

Date: September 21, 2021
Time: Early afternoon
My daughter was working from home that afternoon, this is what she saw:
At this point she started videoing the event.
  Tow truck pulled the plane out of the field toward  a two lane road.
Road was closed, plane position on in the middle of the two lane road,
engine started and the plane took off under its own power.
It was determined the plane had a faulty fuel gauge. Thankfully the pilot must have been very skilled to immediately find a safe place to land.
This is a true story...with THANKFULLY a very good middle and ending.

Feline Friday


  1. wow! man that was close... fortunately the plane landed in da field... we wonder, if the pilot had the same gps girl like our dad? everything ends in a field?

  2. My goodness, what a drama. That must have been a bumpy landing but thank goodness all turned out well in the end. The pilot will be doubly careful about the accuracy of his/her fuel gauge in future!

  3. Whew! Thanks heavens pilot got it stopped. The kitties knew!

  4. Wow, thank goodness the plane missed the houses. It is amazing how often planes crash near homes and just miss them. Love the furniture joke!

  5. wow, glad this final friday non ficiton was not the final landing of the plane... a great place to land, so happy no one was hurt and your daughters home is safe... this not something we read about every day... the problme here is there are so many houses there is nothing but a traffic filled road to land on, which they do a lot, we are 1- to40 miles from 5 airports. 3 big 2 small.

    Crikey - you think you are going to live a quiet life when you move to the sticks... !!! Great FFF entry! YAM xx

  7. wow yes very amazing and very thankful it stayed in the field!

  8. WOW! How scary. I'm glad all of them are okay.

  9. Wow, what an experience. Scary, but I'm glad all was well. Great pilots rock.

    Love the cartoon. I laughed out loud.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hugs, my friend. ♥

  10. That sure is quite a tale to tell! We're glad nobody was harmed and the pilot was able to get airborne again.

  11. Wow, that's pretty amazing. We MOL'd at that toon!!

  12. My Dad had to do something like that back when I was in my 20's and in living Florida. I saw the newspaper article later. He had a similar thing going on. But there were no human habitations where he landed. Just a field. Whew. Messed the place up though. Girls I LOVED that cartoon. I do believe that may be what is TRYING to happen, here!

  13. That is a little too close for comfort but kudos to the pilot for that safe landing. That funny really is!!!

  14. Yikes! Glad no one got hurt. XO

  15. WoW! We are so happy that no one was injured! Kudos to the pilot. And Mom laughed so hard at the cartoon, coffee came out her nose. she says it reminded her of Queen Nellie's art work!

  16. That was a lot of excitement. I am glad n0-one was hurt.

  17. Wow! What a story! We're glad the plane didn't hit the house!

  18. OMC...We are so happy everyone(and kitty)is safe and sound!!

  19. Happy the pilot was able to land safely and far enough away from the homes there that nobody was hurt. My Dad has a single engine Cessna and says because they are such light planes, if something ever happened to the engine while he was flying, the plans is so light he could hopefully glide down to safety. I'm sure that pilot was happy he could get is plane down in the field. The cartoon is hilarious - just goes to show what ARTISTS we cats are!

    Hugs, Teddy

  20. Mama mia- the piot was so lucky as also your family close by! Love the cat cartoon! Have a safe weekend!

  21. I hear a plane flying low and always have a bit of fear it's going to crash into my house. And that almost happened to you!! Yikes! So glad it all turned out ok. What a story! (And I enjoyed the cartoon at the end, too.)
