I snapped this pic moments shortly before I had to declare an emergency with ATC as I was coming in for a landing up in Northern California last night (Saturday). I was approx. 10 miles out when my I was unable to control my aircraft (and there was NO checklist for what I experienced). Long story short, 1 mile before landing, for some reason (someone must have been watching over me), the controls gave way and I was able to land my plane safely! I have to be honest, for a moment, I did think I may crash. Whew, that was pretty scary to say the least! Just thankful I am hear to share my story with you. Fly safe everyone with Much love!
