Jerry Conley
L-29 "Red Star"
Emergency Landing

2008 NAS Oceana Airshow
NAS Oceana, Virginia
Friday September 19, 2008

IN THIS VIDEO, watch as Jerry Conley manages to successfully land his L-29 during an in-flight emergency, which stemmed as a result of his canopy flying off of the plane while taking off. According to a conversation I had with Jerry later that night, the canopy was not damaged and he did not see a single scratch on it. It was repaired, placed back on the plane, and Jerry flew media flights on Saturday and Sunday. He did request the crash trucks to roll out, but they were not needed. I do want to thank Jerry for his VERY PROFESSIONAL handling of the situation at hand and for getting down the ground safely. Had things not gone as they had, I would not have posted the video.

I apologize for the poor video quality, as I was trying my best to get the best video under VERY WINDY conditions, which persisted through Saturday night.

Like what you've seen? Well, if you are interested in purchasing DVDs of specific aircraft and/or of airshows, interested in anything and everything related to airshows (where the jet teams will show up, all airshow performers, airshow reports from airshows I have attended, previews of airshows I will be attending, etc.), a much more easier to navigate "version" of all of my videos, and/or everything there is related to aviation - including spotting guides to my favorite airports and military bases and aircraft factfiles, please take time to check out Steve's Airshow World at http://www.stevesairshow.com .
