Pilot Walks Away From Aircraft Accident In Oregon

By Jim McCoy Fri 22nd February Newsair crash
A 69-year-old pilot has walked away from a crash landing in the Willamette Valley. The Albany Democrat-Herald reports that Jim Sieminski maneuvered his plane between a house and barn Friday morning after he ran into trouble on takeoff from a runway at Tallman southeast of Albany. He told the paper his single-engine plane ran into a crosswind, made a sharp turn and clipped some trees. As the plane came down, it busted through two fences, hit a shoulder on a roadway that sheared off a wheel, and finally came to rest in a grass seed field about a quarter mile from the runway.
