Rob Holland Safe After Forced Landing In Texas

Very glad to hear Rob Holland is safe after a forced landing. He lost his engine and had to put it down at an abandoned airport on Sunday.

Airshow pilot Rob Holland is safe after his custom MXS-RH aircraft went down late Sunday evening. Rob was flying from NAS Kingsville, TX to Shreveport, LA after performing at the Wings Over South Texas airshow on the weekend. While in cruise at 11,500 feet, he lost his engine and oil covered his windshield. He flew the aircraft to an abandoned airport, where he hit debris on the runway that totaled the aircraft.

A couple links to add to this story. First is the NTSB's preliminary report that describes the accident:

Second is a map showing where Rob ended up:

Rob will resume his 2018 schedule after leasing his old MX2 back from the current owner.
