This is something you don't see everyday: An airplane in distress attempts to land in a fairway on a golf course, but misses and winds up in a water hazard.
It might sound crazy, but that's precisely what happened on Monday at a golf course near Dallas.
A single-engine plane landed in a pond at Prestonwood Country Club after its engine failed.
Shortly after 5:30 p.m., the plane went down in the golf course at the country club near Plano Parkway and Midway Road. The pilot, who was the only person on board, tried to land on the fairway, but the plane flipped and ended upside down in the pond, said Plano Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Capt. Peggy Harrell.
Miraculously, the pilot was not injured and got himself out of the plane.
