Title: C172 lands on railroad tracks,... then gets hit by train, KWHP, Pacoima, CA
Post by: uplink on January 09, 2022, 08:14:47 PM
I learned to fly at this airport.  The runway is surrounded by buildings, wires and phone poles.

N8056L, asks for right downwind departure, departs, then says "Mayday, mayday, railroad tracks".  Starts 7 minutes in to recording. LAPD pulled him out within seconds of impact.  The bodycam footage is nuts!
