CHICAGO: Pilot injured in emergency landing in marsh near 93rd Street West of Lake Michigan

Picnickers in Calumet Park witnessed a life-and-death drama as a plane crash-landed just north of the park on the far Southeast Side on Sunday afternoon. The pilot of the single-engine plane survived and was in fair condition after his plane’s nose got stuck in marshy grassland and flipped over several times.

The incident happened about 1:30 p.m. at 93rd Street and the lakefront on Illinois International Port District land just north of Calumet Park.Arthur Arcuri saw the plane coming in over the lake from the southeast and heard its engine sputtering. He said the plane lost altitude and veered toward the shore. “When he got so low, I knew he was going to land,” Arcuri said.

The plane touched down in a grassy area and went about 30 yards, “Then the nose got stuck and it started flipping, maybe three or four times, nose-to tail,” Arcuri said.

Time to give up that hobby, Buddy and look for something else to occupy your time. Try drinking lots of alcohol. Get that barstool with the seat belt.
