Small airplane ditches off Put-In-Bay Video of the crash.

Video: SOUTH BASS ISLAND, OHIO- Small plane ditches into the waters just off South Bass Island late Friday morning following an engine failure.

Watching this video along with my recent experiences flying over Lake Michigan and Lake Erie  has made me seriously consider carrying life preservers on ALL over-water flights. Take note as to how quickly the airplane sank.

Thankfully the pilot executed the emergency landing flawlessly and efforts by the ferry crew led to all four occupants surviving without injury.
