Monomotor se para a 4.500 pies sobre Florida provocando un aterrizaje de emergencia
A serious scare 4,500 feet in the air for former Detroit anchorman and small plane pilot, Mort Crim.
Flying to Jacksonville, Florida along with his wife after a weekend with family in Vero Beach, Crim says the engine of his single-engine aircraft quit.
Describing the incident in a post on his Facebook page Crim said the engine "began to vibrate, run rough and a couple of minutes later, stop dead."
Crim says he was able to get permission from the tower at the airport in Melbourne, Florida to make a dead stick landing.
Three firetrucks, two policemen and assorted airport personnel greeted the plane when it landed. Crim wrote, "In sixty years of flying airplanes, I had never had a complete engine failure while flying a single engine aircraft."
When asked about his passenger Crim told Detroit radio station WWJ that his wife, "was not happy, but she stayed calm. She said later she was scared to death, but she didn’t want to do anything that would distract me from handling the airplane."
Crim said it will probable take a few weeks before the plane will be ready to fly again. "The plane had just had its annual inspection and I hadn’t put four hours on the plane" since the inspection.It looks like the culprit was a gasket that failed and let the oil blow out through the gasket and that burned out a couple of bearings and one problem led to another in the engine," Crim told WWJ.
"I think the scariest part of the whole experience is going to be when I get the bill for the engine repair," he said laughing.

A 4500 metros tienes tiempo de tomarte un cafe antes de comenzar a pensar donde quieres aterrizar
