Incident Details

May 6, 2014 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:

Pilot was flying a student intro flight on a tandem. At some point while maneuvering for a landing, the engine quit. He did not have enough altitude to turn back into the wind and wound up facing two bad choices: 1) land into a barbed wire fence or 2) roll the trike. He rolled it. The student, riding in the front, got hurt. She was taken to a hospital with some amount of injury that has not been reported. (This was not operated under the USPPA tandem program.)
