Emergency landing in Conroe

Recommended Posts

A young woman from Houston successfully landed her plane in a Conroe street after an engine failure.

The pilot, Sarah Chantal Rovner, was doing a Civil Air Patrol flight from West Houston Airport to Lone Star Airport. This was at night, with few visual aids. She had completed around 100 hours of training before the accident flight. It was a very skilled, successful emergency landing.

She has been compared to Chesley Sullenberger by one news story: http://www.39online....0,5920169.story

A video about the event is here:

That is awesome. Amazing that power lines didn't cause more issues. I spent my high school years doing CAP in LA. They didn't let me fly anything, but I got to go on some cool ride-alongs.
