    The pilot was VERY experienced, or VERY lucky. Looks like he might have had some trouble and decided to land right on top of the trees! Amazing site, looks like the plane is just parked right on the side of the hill. Of course, from St Lucy’s you can’t see the damage, but seriously looks like he just landed there, no problem. I hope he and his passenger are ok!!!!

    I was at Church of the Open Door which is above St. Lucy’s and it looks like they missed the top of the mountain by maybe 20 feet. I watched the rescue, I pray they are okay.
