Just over a year ago, I saw a video on YouTube by a man who had crashed his small plane in the remote wilderness of Quebec on July 27, 2019. He survived because his plane had a parachute. I’d never heard of such a thing, so I did a little research on the subject and found CAPS, which stands for Cirrus Airframe Parachute System. Their website states, “The parachute system is designed to protect occupants in the event of an emergency by lowering the aircraft to the ground after deployment.”
Cool. Right? That’s what I thought.
Matt Lehtinen, the pilot who crashed and was stranded in the remote area of the province, shot a Vlog to capture his experience. He was rescued after only five hours but WOW, what an adventure. He captured the discharge of red smoke to mark his position, the arrival of the helicopter and the personnel who descended and aided his rescue.
My imagination absorbed the information and the energy from the video, and the story took shape within minutes. It took much longer to write: 25 days.
