"Ace" Lands his Plane on Canadian Highways... for Fun.

Some of you who visited SkiTek in spring of 2009 may have met Jarad Panarello -- he was the guy staying in the tent down the side of Lake 1. You may have also learned that he is a pilot, mostly snapping photos of trees for Google in Canada.

Well yesterday was just another day at the office, oil pressure went to zero during mid flight. I suppose the oil pressure being low wasn't as concerning as the fact that most of the oil was on the windshield at the time.

So Jarad went ahead and put the plane down in the middle of a highway. Alongside cars traveling at 60mph. Sounds like fun!

Of course the kicker is the $3,000 bill for the tow truck.
