All ok, still amazed how a local aviation community comes together.
what started as a normal approach in the pattern, went south quick.

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. — A small plane crash-landed Tuesday morning on a busy north metro highway.

It happened in Brooklyn Park near the intersection of West Broadway Avenue and Bottineau Boulevard, which is about 2.5 miles northwest of Crystal Airport. Brooklyn Park police say the crash resulted in minor injuries. Thunderbird Aviation, which owns the plane, tells WCCO "everyone on board is safe."
According to the website FlightAware, the Piper Cherokee took off from Crystal Airport at about 7:13 a.m. and was scheduled to return at 10:31 a.m.
