Wiggins 8409 Lands in a Field

Based on the info in the article, I'm pretty sure its Wiggins 8409, and the flight track seems to corroborate that.  Sounds like the pilot handled it well.

Considering that Wiggins flies into and out of airports that are "upgraded fields" yeah he probably did very well.

That and he had an awesome airplane... the Cessna 208!  :mrgreen:

I used to fuel some of these aircraft and boy you should see some of the guys that fly these aircraft....
