I just can't see how that dim bulb of a pilot made such a glaring error.

Not a crash...

Anything you can walk (or swim) away from is a fine landing.

No, darlin'. It's the Mercury News. So it must have been fluorescent bulbs, not halogen.

Otherwise, shine on Subby.

Big Sur was the name of the waterbed place here in town, when I was growing up.

supposed to be a good landing.
a great landing is when you can use the plane right away.

I believe the collective groan from Subby's joke has measured on the Richter scale.

This could possibly be the worst greenlit headline ever.

Subby needs kicked in the nuts.

They were both popular in the 1980's?

In other news, how does Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Rachel Polish pronounce her last name? Is it Pole-ish or Paul-ish?

Single-engine planes falling from the sky? Color me shocked

HaywoodJablonski: Single-engine planes falling from the sky? Color me shocked


The article didn't mention how many engines.
--------------
A radio distress call was received shortly after 3 p.m. from a plane about 38 nautical miles -- 47 land miles -- northwest of Morro Bay, said Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Rachel Polish.

38 nm =~ 44 statute miles, not 47, too. No idea what a "land mile" is.

Journalism, how does that work?
