My own little bit of infamy…

In flight from Cincinnati (I68 to the CSA Canard Flyin at Rough River (2I3), N44VF experienced a catastrophic oil line failure necessitating a forced landing on Highway 3 in Otisco, Indiana. The landing was uneventful aside from a wing strike from a reflector post on the copilot wing moving over to avoid cars. Here’s our account and the initial NTSB report. Read all aobut it on our incident account page.
