"Well, this is it." Last words of this pilot, or at least he thought they would be his last words. When his Tipsy Nipper's engine died the pilot attempted a normal erect spin to the right in order to correct the problem. Unfortunately, the plane then went into a flat spin. Dropping from 3500ft, spinning 26 times, and a failed attempt at restarting and recovering, the pilot thought he was done for. Somehow he recovered the plan at around 700ft and crash landed into a field. He is lucky to be alive!

Wow lucky indeed. It takes a level head to stay calm in that situation; I surely don't think I would have matched it. Thankfully he's ok.
