Engine out

The view: A dead engine

The pilot: W. B. Johnson

The airplane: Cessna 414

The mission: Flying home to Springfield, MO, from Flying Cloud in Minneapolis. I was bringing my son (an airline pilot) and his family home for Thanksgiving on a bitterly cold Thanksgiving Day.

The memory: Our Cessna 414 brought us home without incident, but it was a costly trip (the turbocharger went to lunch without us, and my son couldn’t resist a snapshot).
