7. Propellerless Flight
As a pilot flew a small plane over New York, little did he know that his propeller had gone missing during the flight. It was only after landing that he discovered the startling truth. Despite the absence of a crucial component, the pilot’s quick thinking and skilled maneuvering allowed him to execute a safe dead-stick landing, relying solely on the plane’s glide. The successful landing left him in a state of astonishment, realizing the gravity of the situation and feeling a twinge of shame for not securing the propeller tightly. This extraordinary feat highlights the resourcefulness and composure of pilots in handling unexpected challenges in the air.
