Snow Saves Pilot and Passenger

A recent plane accident caused by the poor visibility could have been a lot worse if it wasn’t for the snow that the aircraft had landed on.

The pilot and the passenger of a turboprop TBM 850 were unharmed after they crashed onto a pile of snow near the Truckee airport as the pilot had problems on the visibility of the runway.

Plane accidents are almost always fatal. But, gladly, the recent accident didn’t result to any casualties as both the occupants were alive and unharmed.
