Unusual attitudes: When 'signed off' doesn't mean 'safe'
According to author Martha Lunken: The service was at a Presbyterian church in a small town east of Cincinnati, Ohio — about a 30-minute flight in the Cessna 180. I had planned to fly there and commandeer the airport's retired police car, but my airplane wouldn't start. When I jumped in and "cranked," it wouldn't fire — odd, because it was fresh out of an annual and always lights right off. So I drove across the ramp, asked the guys at a shop to check it out, and got on the road for the two-hour drive to Hillsboro.
