The Mother-in-Law

The Mother-in-Law started taking flying lessons recently and she got her license shortly after that same year.

Yesterday afternoon, she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting when she was forced to make an emergency landing on the South Coast near Littlehampton because of bad weather.

The CAA issued a preliminary report, citing pilot error: The Mother-in-Law was flying a single engine aircraft in IFR (instrument flight rating) conditions while only having obtained a VFR (visual flight rating) rating.

The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel on board. No one on the ground was injured.

Photographs were taken at the scene show the extent of damage to her aircraft.

She was very lucky
