Bikers are not the only ones having troubles with cagers

Well up to now I thought it was just bikers had problems with cagers. Now they have started a new group to go after.....

I wonder why that road is so close to the end of the runway, or v.v.

Yeah, seems like a really stupid place for the road.

Whose fault is this? I suspect the pilot of the plane was much more likely to see the truck rather than the other way around.

"Maverick, negative on the high speed pass....traffic is in the pattern."

Looks like someone put a road too close to the runway....the pilot is aiming for the numbers and hits the Volvo.....he had a nice approach. Think I'd have to post a sign on that road stating that airplanes have the right of way.....the airport I solo'ed from had a road just like that. but, as mostly pilots used it, we knew to look for traffic. It did have a sign stating "aircraft have right of way" on it. And when the YAK took off, NO traffic would move on that road....(Yak-55). 172 Cessna's weren't designed to fly thru cars.....

Apparantly, turns out, the pilot is the brother of the guy in the "Why you shouldn't 'lean' a Harley" thread.

Speaking of trouble with cagers it was like a war zone today for me in Toledo

looks like the SUV was inside that white fence and I'm guessing that's the boundary of the airport.

I don't have much love for SUV's, he'd have cleared my Corolla easily. If you're gonna drive a shoe box around occasionally flying objects are gonna run into ya. Glad that landing turned out ok and that he opted for the break away landing gear when he bought the plane.

I agree....the article did say they had "no idea what the SUV was doing there" or something to that effect, and as you suggest, it looks like the SUV is driving around the field's perimeter road inside the field.

It looks like that, but the article actually says it is a public road.
