Shame, looks like the engine issues returned again, not nice...

If you don't gear up your brain before takeoff, you'll probably gear up your airplane on landing.

Whatever the reason - looks like a good outcome.
Escaping unscathed from what looks like a forced landing in a suburb can't be easy.

Is it just me or does it appear that the port side main gear is not there, photo shopped perhaps ?

Hey Guys - Looks pretty normal - fishy ??? don't spread rumors [-X - the port side gear is there just look at the pic ?
If who was flying is who I think it was he is a great rally/precision pilot and practiced at forced lobs - that's who members of this sport should get lower insurance :-)

Is it just me, or does the term EMERGENCY landing sound very newspaperish?

Aren't these things are normally FORCED landings, PRECAUTIONARY landings or CRASHES?

Some guys need cleaning stuff for their glasses, I guess. All three wheels are visible in the positions where they should be.

Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Dear emotional contributors, please forgive me for questioning the landing gear. I will never do it again and beg for your forgiveness.
