Complete ATC communications with a very scared pilot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B229-KLudTo
I agree that she was scared in the early stages but her confidence returned and she listened to her instructor. I recall a student pilot at our airport KTTA who hit a large bird on downwind that damaged the wing. She got the aircraft on the ground and all was OK. I believe this was due to excellent training in both incidents. Yeah Maggie
Great job by everyone involved. Any pilot should be a the very least "concerned" in this situation.
She did exactly what every pilot should do fly the airplane until it stops. That has saved many from injury including Clayton Scott or Scotty as he was known not that many years back.
Maggie is awesome, that was really cool.
Well Done Maggie!!
