Lance air es posted on october 15th albert gets right to the point crashed my airplane yesterday. Thats one way to get a readers attention. He continues descending into eugene 35 miles out or so over. The mountains bit lower than i would normally be for a broken cloud layer, sudden engine to sell and misfire made a quick glide assessment. Nothing but forest went through all emergency checklist items in my head engine just got worse. Cockpits started to fill with some smoke, not a ton of altitude committed to a forced landing. Let atc know where i was at surveyed my glide options again. Nothing but dense forest dead sticking into forested territory and in the mountains, no less seemed like a pretty risky event at about a thousand feet: agl, maybe 1500 feet agl. I decided to reach up for that. Nice red handle um gave it a good yank um. Initially, i was in a nose down attitude, pretty significant nose down attitude and i thought i hope this certainly straightens out quickly. It did and then i went level and then i came down you know through that canopy right there dont think ill fly another plane, a small plane uh without a parachute uh. It was really certainly not when you fly over hostile terrain like this, so glad to be alive.
