Sooo... how did Keith wind up ...

Post by Shinjo B »

Hi everyone. New here and just finished watching the VFR workshops. Really great, but utterly dismayed when the Bravo recordings got to the end and we never heard about how Keith wound up in the back of the Sheriff's squad car. Gotta know man, gotta know. :D

Battery wasn't strong enough to start plane, no T-Mobile coverage in a good part of the state, no pay phone. Called 911 thinking it might be able to connect to another network (it did). Explained situation to dispatcher, gave her 3 phone numbers listed in ForeFlight for the airport manager, she said she'd try them all to relay a message, otherwise if no joy, she'd call the Sheriff.

20 minutes later, the Sheriff rolls up and I get a ride to the hotel. She said, "that's funny, we normally get called to haul people out of this hotel."
