Emergency Landing 421

POLK COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- The Sun 'n Fun Fly-In starts today and already there were some tense moments in the sky for a pilot headed to the event.
The pilot, Kyle Davis, 22, and his passenger, Joe Surowiec, were flying from Winter Haven to Lakeland Sunday when they experienced engine failure.

Realizing the engine wouldn't cooperate, Davis was able to land the homemade plane safely on Havendale Boulevard.

"The options for me were land on the road or land on the lake," Davis said.

Davis is a part-time flight instructor with 1,300 hours in the skies. His own flight instructor, John Amundsen, calls his roadway landing, incredible.

"Watching that video, he was just awesome," Amundsen said. "I just hope, you know, if I ever have a situation like that I can be as cool as Kyle was."

No injuries were reported.

Sunday's incident didn't scare Davis away from the skies. He plans to fly his own plane to the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In later this week.

It's unknown what caused the engine failure.

Danish Sailors: Harbor Entry in High Seas

This is what luck looks like. Luck, combined with a whole lot of skill. Notice the person at the front. I'm sure they're locked in with a harness, but that would still be a wild ride.

The harbor is Svaneke, a town on an island in the Baltic Sea. According to this thread at the Wooden Boat Forum, local guides say you shouldn't even attempt entering Svaneke harbor during strong onshore winds. I have no idea what prompted this crew to take a shot, but I'm guessing they decided the alternatives were worse.

'Bionic' Eye Success

Bionic eyes were once thought to be the creation of science fiction, but now doctors in Germany have developed a computer chip that could help restore the sight of hundreds of thousands of blind people.

Retinal implants are able to partially restore the vision of people with particular forms of blindness caused by diseases such as macular degeneration or retinitis pigmentosa.

About 200,000 people worldwide have retinitis pigmentosa, and one in 10 people over the age of 55 have age-related macular degeneration.

The experimental chip has been tested on three men with astonishing results.
