Man mistakes neighborhood for a nearby airport landing strip

Spring Hill, Florida – It appears the pilot of a single-engine plane mistook a Pasco County neighborhood for a nearby airport landing strip. According to deputies, the 22-year-old student pilot said his GPS indicated that Citation Road in the Pasco Trails subdivision was a Pilot Country Airport landing strip. The airport is less than three miles from where he actually landed. His Cirrus SR20 plane hit some mailboxes, small trees and a fence. No one was injured in the landing. A neighbor said he spoke with the pilot afterwards and the pilot was a Chinese national and did not speak English well.  Full Article
