Thuttday, Aog 28,. 19S0 .) Upptt Bit Metftti-8 Pilot Lands Here Without Wheels Russell Lynch of Gteen Mountain, (near Marshalllown) must have had "someone up there" as co-pilot when he landed the Piper Comanche he was flying at the Algona airport about 6 p.m. Aug. 8. He narrowly escaped serious injury or possible death when the plane belly-landed perfectly on a grass runway. , Actually,, very little damage resulted to the plane and Mr Lynch was uninjured. The plane, shown in the above photo as Airport Manager Wayne Johnson, Wes Schultz of the Schultx garage and Mr Lynch rigged it for lifting off the ground with a. wrecker, was not seriously damaged. Both tips of the propeller were bowed backward, the radio blister on the underside of the craft was crumpled and the Exhaust pipes were flattened when the Comanche skidded across the Mr Lynch approached the runway from the south. He normally flies planes with fixed landing gear, and forgot to drop the Comanche's tricycle gear before he hit the ground. The plane hit the runway about 25 feet south of the airport's blacktop runway, which runs northwest to southeast scooted north and came to rest about 72 feet north of the blacktop. , " He flew to Algona to pick up his daughter who had been Visiting the previous week with the Don Clark family at Galbraith. , • ,,,,,. After the plane was-lifted by the wrecker, it took about 20 minutes to lock the landing gear down so the plane could be towed to one of the hangars at the airport. (UDM Newsfoto- Engraving).
