By George Hatcher

On May 20, two people aboard a float plane were safe after the pilot landed in Lake Päijänne Finland with the wheels down.

Neither the pilot or passenger had more than minor injuries, though the plane flipped on landing after the pilot forgot. Both pilot and passenger had minor bruises and a “cold bath.”

After the plane flipped, the men climbed on top of the cabin to await rescue.
