No Time to Panic: Strategic Survival Expert Joel Skousen Survives Plane Crash
March 16th, 2013
Former Marine fighter pilot and well known strategic relocation survival expert Joel Skousen (WorldAffairsBrief.com) was flying home from Las Vegas this week when his experimental Glasair I aircraft experienced an unrecoverable problem with the plane’s fuel flow system. According to first responders on the scene the plane was, “completely totaled in the wreck, after flipping and partially detaching the wings.”
“It’s the first time I’ve done an accident, an engine-out landing to a field,” said Skousen.
“When I slowed down to put the landing gear down and went to put power back on, to reach speed, it wouldn’t come back up.”
“As a longtime pilot for many, many years, you read about a lot of accidents,” he said.
“You’re trained to go through these procedures of trying to get that engine restarted, throwing on the pumps, throwing the booster, checking the fuel. And so you really don’t have time to panic because you are going through procedures.”
Skousen was not seriously injured in the crash, receiving only a few cuts and bruises. He was not transported to a hospital.
