Unfortunately it can't float forever...

"Reaching that field compelled (the pilot) to stretch the airplane’s gliding characteristics to the absolute extreme.

Unable to maintain the plane’s approach speed of 60 mph, Heathcoat slowed to just 35."


Pilot and copilot were ok. They landed it between two housing tracts in a field of only 10 acres. Clipped some wires and ended upside down. It's back at its home field, looking like it wants to be repaired.
