Manfred Forst, an 80 year old pilot, is lucky to be alive after the small plane he was flying crashed into a tree and landed, gear down, in a parking lot, ironically in Plainville, Conn. Forst was not hurt and it wasn't immediately known why the plane crashed in the parking lot near the airport. The good thing, only very minor injuries, showing that tried and true saying is 100% correct - any landing you can walk away from is a good one!
