Joe Wardle’s Emergency Landing

This photo illustrates the more likely intersection of plane and car. But in 1952 a certain Joe Wardle got lucky.

This took place in 1952. The truck in your photo is newer than that.

MIDLAND, Texas (KTXS) - A small plane has crashed in a parking lot in Midland.

It landed on a GMC pickup, crushing the roof and windshield.

Samantha Baeza was at work and saw the plane falling to the ground after its parachute deployed.

Sorry about any confusion, CRC. As I thought my opening comment made clear, the illo was just generic, for a typical plane-auto collision, and not specific to 1952.
