Emergency Landing [ATC]

January 20, 2012

On Sunday, July 18th, I was flying a Cessna 172 from Midland, TX to Baytown, TX doing a routine pipeline patrol. Upon entering Houston Intercontinental’s (KIAH) Class Bravo Airspace, I began to experience a very rough engine plus a rapid oil leak. The flight ended in an off-airport landing. Myself and the airplane sustained absolutely no damage on landing.

    Talk about remaining calm. You talked to the controller? as if nothing is wrong. Wow. Just out of curiousity, are you a PP, CP, or ATP?

    Nothing new to add, but boy do you redefine grace under pressure. If I’m ever crash landing in a plane I hope you’re? flying it. Well, you or that Sullenberger guy.
