 I learned to fly and got my licence with this plane in Cranbrook bc back in about 1998. I was scheduled for my final flight test the day pacific western crashed on landing there. Dtr is a very forgiving aircraft as I almost bent it severely myself. I did a full power incipient at 7000 ft but didn't realize the winds aloft (still a student) and got blown over backwards. I do remember the emerg flares hitting the back of my head, not knowing which way was up, the stall warnings coming on...... and then seeing the ground appearing very quickly. I did not panic ! I knew the stall alarm meant there was no air going over the wings so I had to push the controls into an even further dive to recover air speed. I then heard a loud rush of airflow, the stall warnings stopped and the airspeed indicator exceeded 160. I proceeded to gently pull back the controls as I also feared breaking the wings off at that speed straight down . The plane leveled off in a valley between two hills about 300 ft above the trees...below 4000 ft. Then I started to vibrate! got the extreme adrenalin rush, took it back to Cbk airport but then couldn't recall how to land....basically flew it on to the tarmac and shut it down. I did continue flying and got the licence but with a whole lot more respect and caution. If I recall correctly, this plane was rated for a max 17 kt crosswind landing. Well I got stuck in a surprise squall one day and brought it in at 34 kt cross wind. It landed without a concern. These are true events. I haven't flown in over 25 years, but will never forget my training days in DTR. Where is it now? B
